New Jersey Stage 2017: Issue 5 - Page 63

Nashville Rock.” Andy Summers rose to fame in the late 1970s and early 1980s as the guitarist of the legendary award-winning, multi-million- selling rock band The Police - a group that was recognized as the most successful and criti- cally acclaimed band of the era. There was a multi-year stretch when you couldn’t turn on the radio and not hear the talented trio. Upon disbanding, Summers launched a prolific solo career that continues to this day with the release of Triboluminescenc, which is actually a scientific word that means creating light from dark. The guitarist’s current di- rection is an experimental one that probably won’t be getting much airplay. Most likely that suits him just fine as he’s been there, done that and sold the T-shirts. Andy calls his new style “New Exotic” and that fits as the album’s nine tracks are individu- al soundscapes with the power to transport you to far off places in your imagination.
