G Vaughan, Si Hayden 'Process' (2017)
(CD Album)
Silvery
SRCD088

On the 3rd of June I found myself in the company of Si Hayden for an improvised session at Tom's UT Design at the arches, Coventry. The session was engineered by Mark Saunders and we achieved a great room sound.
I had a pretty clear vision of how I wanted the output from this session to sound but no real idea of how exactly this was going to be achieved. Now it’s complete, it has ended up sounding how I’d imagined.
It was recorded in 5 sessions over 2 hours, with a cup of coffee and a cigarette in between for reflection of the previous session and a chat for inspiration on the next - before pressing the red button.
There were some very interesting unintended consequences of recording in this way, the most noticeable to me and bizarrely - three of the sessions (although really different in feel) came in at around 14 minutes and to within 11 seconds of each other. Even when trying to break the mould our “conditioning” seemed to point to a completion or perceived attention span of around half a side of vinyl.
Over the last 15 - 20 years or so the recording process has evolved hugely, with mobile studios allowing endless options which has led to a tendency of musicians to be subconsciously flippant at the recording stage, as in the back of your mind you know you are able to mould an adequate session/performance into something resembling a finished product at post production.
The power of the studio and capturing the live session cannot be underestimated. To my mind, studio innovators such as George Martin (assisted by Geoff Emerick) were able to capture the essence of the performance, with relatively basic equipment and in the same way that visual CGI can dilute the atmosphere of film (when done crudely) digital manipulation of music can have the same effect in reducing atmosphere.
There is a lot to be said for collecting musicians in a room for any period of time without outside influence (mobile phones) and this is one of the things we have forgotten or seem unable to do.
So to my mind we have ended up, here, with an organic, improvised mix album, full of fast moving, filthy space funk vibes – reminiscent of the "70 minutes of madness" album, pulled together by Coldcut back in the day and incorporates everything that has ever gone into our ears. There is nothing left on the cutting room floor, every second was used with the only editing being the placing of the tracks in an order which seemed to sit together as a pleasing progression.
We chucked a few cameras up for options and as it turns out, I think this allows the actual performance captured here to be the virtual launch of this Album. (G. Vaughan)

"That "Acoustic Lines" is Hayden's 27th recording is just one of this British born virtuoso's intimidating achievements. Largely self-taught, Hayden has illustrated a restless temperament in his career, exploring a dizzying variety of techniques and styles, from Celtic to fingerstyle to jazz to Flamenco. His compositions incorporate percussive tapping, hopscotching harmonics, fast runs, and intricate picking spiced with impressive right-hand techniques typical of classical guitar, such as tremolos and rasgueado strumming. On "Acoustic Lines"' collection of nine standout originals, he displays more of his soulful side, highlighting his sure, graceful playing. Hayden has experimented in the past with a fretless guitar, using fingertips (rather than a slide) on individual strings; this novel technique is beautifully illustrated on the lovely "Coasting." "Nowhere to Run" is another knockout; moody and evocative, it begins with a Mid-Eastern vibe that transitions into a bluesy romp. On this arresting, eclectic collection, Hayden proves he should be much better known on this side of the Atlantic." (© Céline Keating/Minor7th.com)

"DESCRIBED by Guitarist Magazine as a guitar virtuoso there cannot be many music lovers in the Coventry, and surrounding area, who have never heard or come across Si Hayden. Si, of course, has written over 500 songs, appeared on over 60 albums, and released 28 albums during a career that now spans well over 15 years. He has also written music for film, TV and radio. He has even featured on an EP that also involved comedian Rik Mayall. Talking to Si you soon realise that being able to play an instrument is one thing but, for him, creativity and bringing something new to that instrument is everything. His enthusiasm and love for what he does also quickly rises to the surface. And guitar is NOT his only weapon of choice." (By Pete Clemons, Coventry Telegraph)

"Just Amazing"(Melodies & Memories)
"Incredible! This boy can play... we are going to cook something together!" (Gilad Atzmon)
“We really like what you have done with the Four Seasons; it has been on repeat in the car for almost a month!” (Yamaha's Martin Adam/Guitar Product Marketing Manager)
"The Four Seasons of Vivaldi performed by a fingerstyle guitarist? We leave you with Si Hayden's masterful interpretation"(Alejandro Clavijo/Reviews New Age) "Si Hayden's most complete work. Interpreting the all the emotions Vivaldi first heard with astonishing technique. Album of The Year." Kris Connolly/Art Into Heart)
"Coventry-born virtuoso guitarist, Hayden has collected top reviews for nearly 30 albums. One recent project creating a stir is his impressive guitar-based reworking of Vivaldi's Four Seasons" (Pete Willow/CoventryTelegraph)
"This one's a little bit different from prolific guitarist Si Hayden, a solo guitar version of Vivaldi's Four Seasons, there's no overdubs, nothing else, his own arrangement and apparently does not read music so has accomplished the whole thing by ear, pretty amazing! I hope you enjoyed that, I certainly did!" (Steve Passiouras/PBSFM/Australia)
“I think what 2014 has reinforced with me is just how fortunate Coventry and its surrounding area is to have so much impressive, yet varied, talent right here on our doorstep. March saw the arrival of Si Hayden’s interpretation of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons on acoustic guitar. You may well be tempted to buy. If that is the case then just do it. Trust me, none of these album releases will disappoint.” (Pete Clemons, Coventry Telegraph)
"Si Hayden has taken on the monumental task of arranging the complete "Four Seasons" by Vivaldi for solo guitar; the first time this has ever been attempted. I approached my first listen with a measured degree of scepticism, but was treated to a lovely and unique take on these classic compositions. The works take on a fresh and charming new life when applied to the guitar, while still being satisfyingly true to the original melodies and harmonies. Occasionally Hayden employs various extended guitar techniques to achieve a desired effect, flirting with the limits of the instrument, and making for a particularly enjoyable listen for any guitarist. If you're already a fan of the original Vivaldi "Four Seasons," you will no doubt relish in this new and clever take on them." (© Timothy Smith/Minor7th)
"Coventry virtuoso challenges the world – and himself – to reading one of the most celebrated classical opuses with six strings only. For Si Hayden one acoustic guitar is a key to virtuosity, as he proved so many times before on records such as "Supercharger", yet tackling a piece as famous as Antonio Vivaldi’s quartet of violin concertos with no overdubs, for the first time on CD, feels like a feat – with no heroics attached. It’s a reverential interpretation faithful to the 18th century composer’s original, ...the guitarist adds a new layer to the classic without either embellishing or downgrading it, and it’s immensely interesting, up to intriguing, it’s not his boldness that impresses the most but the sheer beauty and wonder of the musical gauze being born, or rather reborn, before our very ears. A quiet triumph." ***** (Dmitry M Epstein/Let It Rock)

'Beautiful Record' - Gilles Peterson
Engaging original tunes and jazz favourites that reflect the band's musical influences from around the world

The second album from Midlands jazz group Interplay, ‘ Global’ gives greater exposure to the band’s world music affiliations while remaining true to their full-on jazz expressiveness. With nods to the Latin, North African and Indian classical traditions among a real breadth of jazz compositions, the album presents a fresh approach to instrumentation and also showcases some fine individual and group improvisations.

The tunes come mainly from the pen of bassist and leader Adrian Litvinoff. Of the band’s first album ‘Introducing Interplay’ Jazz CD Reviews said ‘Litvinoff… wrote all but two of the tunes on this debut CD, and they are all melodious and memorable….the arrangements are warm and imaginative.’

Joe O'Donnell - Into The Becoming' (2013)
(CD Album)
Silvery
SRCD060

Joe O’Donnell first made a name for himself as a doyen of the electric fiddle on the Seventies Irish rock scene alongside the likes of Rory Gallagher, and the rock ethic is still predominant in his playing, so I don’t think he’ll mind if I say this CD is not for purists. The musicians in his band come from jazz or rock rather than folk backgrounds.

The captivating sound of Joe O’Donnell’s Shkayla brings together the spirit of Celtic tradition and the dynamic grooves of modern rock and jazz.

Limerick-born Joe’s career has previously included work with former Steeleye Span members, Terry and Gay Woods, dynamic fiddle-driven rock band East Of Eden and the late, great Irish bluesman Rory Gallagher.

Singing songs in English and Gaelic and playing soaring fiddle melodies and improvisations, Joe is accompanied by a team of first-class musicians who really understand and do justice to the dynamic spirit of Celtic, jazz and rock music.

Si Hayden - 'Acoustic Lines' (2012)
(CD Album)
Silvery
SRCD061

"This standout folk-styled offering on Si Hayden's jaw-dropping album Acoustic Lines, has a beautiful Nick Drake quality about it, A noteworthy release." (Number 12 on the Top #50 ESSENTIAL TRACKS TO LISTEN TO THIS MONTH/Elegant-Savages Magazine)

"That "Acoustic Lines" is Hayden's 27th recording is just one of this British born virtuoso's intimidating achievements. Largely self-taught, Hayden has illustrated a restless temperament in his career, exploring a dizzying variety of techniques and styles, from Celtic to fingerstyle to jazz to Flamenco. His compositions incorporate percussive tapping, hopscotching harmonics, fast runs, and intricate picking spiced with impressive right-hand techniques typical of classical guitar, such as tremolos and rasgueado strumming. On "Acoustic Lines"' collection of nine standout originals, he displays more of his soulful side, highlighting his sure, graceful playing. Hayden has experimented in the past with a fretless guitar, using fingertips (rather than a slide) on individual strings; this novel technique is beautifully illustrated on the lovely "Coasting." "Nowhere to Run" is another knockout; moody and evocative, it begins with a Mid-Eastern vibe that transitions into a bluesy romp. On this arresting, eclectic collection, Hayden proves he should be much better known on this side of the Atlantic." (© Céline Keating/Minor7th.com)

"Fine Lines and Fast Tracks – The Guitar Art of Si Hayden. May 31, 2013 Si Hayden has produced twenty-seven albums of guitar music exploring improbable possibilities with his chosen instrument. However, all nine pieces featured on his most recent offering Acoustic Lines are stand up songs even though it’s his guitar that undoubtedly does all the singing. There are dozens of parts in these arrangements and a degree of complexity that would utterly confound amateur fingers. But the tunes speak clearly enough to even the most casual listener, for they use a comfortingly familiar etymology where no words are necessary to convey understanding. Acoustic Lines is solo guitar artistry in the spirit of Bert Jansch, Tommy Emannuel, Slowhand unplugged and Leo Kottke. But, the challenge for any accomplished player ploughing this furrow is to somehow make sure that his own voice is heard above the clatter of the inevitable comparisons. One way of doing that is to emulate Si Hayden and dispense with the genre-specific. You are then free(-er) to concentrate on personal expression. That is perhaps an incidental side-benefit of being self-taught. You absorb everything except the clichés. Hayden is an extremely rhythmic player who alights upon relatively simple melodic structures and festoons them with delicate grace notes and deft harmonics. 'Searchlight' and 'Time Out' are good examples of the “catch me if you can” elements of his technique. But he’s good-natured enough to let you stop and catch your breath on Nowhere To Run, an English blues with a mouthful of grass, and the sweet Flower Girl. Acoustic Lines sounds satisfyingly “live” and it clearly benefits from the decision to record all the tracks in one take. Certainly, it affirms that Hayden’s playing is tricky stuff but it’s achieved without studio trickery or sleight of hand. More than that, the immediacy of these recordings brings the tunes to life and conveys the power of delight in making music. Ultimately, Acoustic Lines is Si Hayden’s collection of evocative watercolours full of naturalistic scenes from the dark 'Forest' to the rippling, river of notes on 'Walnut Bridge'. The only slightly odd thing is that the opening tune 'Coasting' has such a strong melody that it might have occupied centre stage in the listings. However, I think it’s just a device to keep you listening on repeat play to this quite charming album." (©instrumentali.com)

"To say that Si is one of the best discoveries of Reviews New Age in a while is saying a lot and if we add possibly one of the best fingerstyle guitarists who has been through our site. A British guitar virtuoso who has collaborated with great musicians and performed in major venues, this has earned the affection of the public and a wave of amazing reviews, not only in his performances, but also in his works. Si plays showing an incredible technique without abandoning the development of melodies that set the pace. Acoustic Lines is nine composed pieces that will capture your attention from the first to the last. To start "Coasting", something soft and which serves as an introduction, is a piece that identifies with strength to the guitar label Windham Hill, the melody is gentle and peace is born between the strings of solos. With more pace and with an extraordinary laziness in harmonics is born one of the most interesting parts of this album. "Searchlight", lovely, it's warmth... how only an instrument can provide so many sounds and in such perfect harmony?. Fascinating!. With increased intensity and strength comes "Oversteer" a quick tap joined to blunt chords wielded with force. "Flower Girl" a gentle and melodic piece that relies on slides and soft arpeggios to offer a slight romantic touch to the theme, a piece that holds a strong feeling of affection, broken rhythms and catchy melodies, a unique and captivating style. 'Simple Things', another strong piece where Hayden is marking the tempo box coup and interprets at the same time, the beautiful melody. Another wonder of this CD! The real jewel of Acoustic Lines carries the title "Time Out". Complete in all respects, seductive and technically outstanding. Hayden made a masterful interpretation of this complicated piece, a music that falls in love from the first chord. The piece that shows the virtuosity of Si Hayden is "Nowhere to Run". A complicated web of chords, marked in box slides, taps and harmonics. Amazing! "Walnut Bridge", this is fast and with a light touch of American folk, which offers you a cheerful and positive feeling. Finally, Si advocates a very introspective composition. On this occasion makes no fast strumming or taps, leaving one end open for the listener. Performing a deep gentle melody, perfect for relaxing and meditation. Si is one of the best guitarist fingerstyle that can be heard, a true virtuoso of the instrument, a true delight to see him act or simply, listen to some of his work. Acoustic Lines is one of the most surprising CDs of the genious acoustic guitar that we have received. Very highly recommended!" (©Alejandro Clavijo/reviewsnewage.com)

Hayden Haines Holt - 'H-Division' (2012)
(CD Album)
Silvery
SRCD054

Silvery Records present Si Hayden's 24th album 'H-Division' 10 original rock instrumentals with Ben Haines on drums and Adam Holt on Bass.
This is something quite different from the Joe O'Donnell guitarist of Flamenco and Celtic roots.

"No bombast despite the H-Factor, a killer instrumental threesome exploring the most ethereal corners of rock idiom. Never the one to slow down his pace - which doesn't make the man a shredder, - Hayden closely follows 2011's "Supercharger", which found the British axeman on his own, with this album set up for a trio format. Surely, the criterion for inviting bassist Adam Holt and drummer Ben Haines to the party wasn't their surnames' first letter, as there's a telepathic sympathy in the ten tracks that - save, perhaps, for the sharply focused rage of enchanting "Altitude" (shouldn't it be "Attitude"?) - can be only loosely described as "rock" only because a shadow of fusion hangs over the proceedings and peaks familiarly in "Light-Com". Once the heavy riff of opener "Escape" gives way to notes that flutter rather than flurry over the brooding groove, a sunny vista is invoked into which "Vorcenellaraptorai" shoots a flamenco-tinctured twang. In "Azimodal Equinox", though, such a spank lies in a bass domain as the guitar steps behind the rhythm to color the gritty jive, but "Aperphelion" offers the listener a blissful electric flight across the acoustically rippling sky. Higher and higher, when it comes to "Zodiacal Apparition" the sensual soaring is somewhat undercut by the piece's motorik engine: kosmische musik it ain't, and here's the momentum gets lost, until "One Way" invites Hayden's harmonic riffola back. Powerful and imaginative work." **** (Dmitry M. Epstein - Let It Rock)

Si Hayden - 'Supercharger' (2011)
(CD Album)
Silvery
SRCD052

"Resonator instrumentals from the fast lane:
Coventry acoustic virtuoso Si Hayden has experimented in a variety of unconventional musical contexts - from live drum 'n' bass and jazz to Celtic and Spanish classical - than this solo-guitar instrumental outing lets on. All the songs were recorded on a resonator and. impressively, it was all done in just a single take. His technique shows the fingerprints of other musical forms, but for the most part, it's a mixture of blues and folk staples - with alternate picking, slide and percussive slaps evident throuout. Hayden wrings the most out the resonator's steely attack, offering up a bevy of harmonics and rhythmic possibillities along the way. Its no small feat to walk the line between accessible melody and fleet-fingered flash as expertly as this" Standout track: Time Out For fans of: Tommy Emmanuel, Bert Jansch, Isaac Guillory" (Guitarist Magazine - http://www.musicradar.com/guitarist/guitarist-issue-352-on-sale-now-529060)


"A six-string virtuoso gives a master class of one-take approach leaving no space for casual spontaneity and the whole world for emotions With all his versatility, Si Hayden could have been a national treasure in the U.K. if only he had the rage of Rory Gallagher or the flash of Richard Thompson, but he prefers to keep it down and serious be it on his own or as foil for violinist Joe O'Donnell, or as multi-instrumentalist in jazzers MORLEY HAYDEN HAINES. And here's an example: Si's many musical faces are reflected, and refracted, in a dozen of acoustic guitar pieces that are being played as straight as a lace goes, with no overdubs to paint an additional, needless vignette. Still, the cover car is an amalgamation of the title track which marries Delta blues to flamenco to demonstrate Hayden's filigree finger-work, while the devilish slide that rides through "A Slight Tale" makes its ominous entrance in the sparse opener "Dusk" to set the agenda. Yet it doesn't prepare the listener for such deliciously lazy groove as the one under "I Roll" or the shadow of Indian chant of "Walnut Bridge". Whatever wide the maestro stylistic palette is, there's a wholeness to the album, a sign of Si's immaculate taste matching his delivery and making the result sharply focused and sensually riveting. Calm but cool." **** (Dmitry M. Epstein - Let It Rock)

Si Hayden - 'Live at The Hinckley Act' (2011)
(CD Album+DVD)
Silvery
SRCD048

“An amazing guitar player and a firm favourite at the club” (Keith london, HinckleyAct)

"His style is certainly unique and interesting, His arrangement of Moondance (Van Morrison) was refreshing, combining the chord structure and lead melodies fluently and comfortably. Si followed with a piece called ‘Beginning’ from a musical he wrote for. It was somewhat like a Paganini piece, a mixture of dynamics, chord travelling and little hooks, his playing was intriguing and lively, filling the room pleasantly." (Editor/The Evil Jam)

The guitarist whose dazzling mastery of that instrument, and a few others besides, wins him admirers wherever he goes, Si Hayden, will be talking about career in, and love of, music. A few racks from the many albums he’s appeared on will be played, and he himself, with a little persuasion from the audience, may demonstrate some of his virtuosity by playing a few pieces on the day. (Kevin Cryan, Arts & Entertainment Coventry Central Library)

"Coventry label Silvery Records has announced the simultaneous launch of CDs by two of the area's most distinctive acts - guitar phenomenon Si Hayden and the incorrigible Blues and Soul duo SugarDaddies. 20th CD by Coventry guitar ace Si Hayden. 'Live at the Hinckley Act Folk Club' captures Si at his mesmerizing best at the unusual venue located in an industrial estate off the A5 which regularly features such top guitarists as Gordon Giltrap and Michael Chapman. A prolific recording artist since 1998, Si’s last live solo guitar album was recorded at the 2005 Coventry Jazz Festival." (Pete Willow/Coventry Telegraph)

Coventry Telegraph/Christmas single by leading folk-rock musician to raise funds for East Midlands children's hospice. (All proceeds go to Rainbow's Children's Hospice.) 'Early noel for Joe O’Donnell' - CHRISTMAS has come early for violin ace Joe O’Donnell whose new single brings together the traditions of India, Morocco, France and Coventry. Noel Nouvelet combines the melodies of the Coventry Carol and a traditional French carol and – with 90 downloading days to Christmas – Joe is running an unusual promotion on the social networking site Facebook to showcase three different versions of the song. He explains: “I wanted to do something different for the single. The musical arrangements themselves are an unusual combination of east and west and people are able to choose which version works best for them.” (Coventry Telegraph)

All tracks feature members of his band Shkayla with Martin Barter on keyboards, Si Hayden on guitars, Brendan J Rayner on drums plus bass playing by Adrian Litvinoff and Mark Fulton and guest appearances by Juggy Rihal on tabla and dohl. Joe provides multi-track violin to create a distinctive Asian sound in contrast to his usual folk-rock arrangements of traditional Celtic music. London-based Indian singer Shaheen provides vocals for one version while Coventry’s Justine Watson sings on versions two and three which are based on a ‘trip-pace’ arrangement, one slightly faster than the other.

SilveryRecords introduce the delectable sound of Interplay, a jazz delight! Welcome to the first offering by INTERPLAY, the band founded in 2007 by bassist and composer Adrian Litvinoff. The sounds on this album reflect the band’s development on the road, shaped by experimenting, taking risks and putting the audience at the centre of everything it does. Adrian’s tunes are evocative and warm, connecting with emotions and experiences, memorable rather than abstract. Drawing from their immersion in many musical genres he and the band explore all sorts of textures and sounds not always associated with contemporary jazz, to delight the ear and create ‘the sound of surprise’. The guys in the band are all well known players in the region – and the album shows just why. Richard Baker is a fine trombonist. If he’s not a virtuoso yet he soon will be! His classically-honed technique is put to awesome and expressive use in ‘Faces and Places’ and ‘Grey Day at Gorey’. He tears it up big-time on ‘Boogie Stop Shuffle’, while his solo on ‘Ode to Duke’ perfectly mirrors the mood and delivery of the lyric by Andra Sparks. Alan Wakeman on soprano and tenor saxes brings something wild and free to the ensemble that is always grounded in musicality and emotional honesty. His solos on ‘Hang Around’ and ‘Island’ are both outstanding, as is his rendition of ‘Rising on Thermals’. Neil Hunter is a gifted and creative pianist, and energy just seems to flow through him. At times reflective and tender, at others driving and exuberant, he is a great accompanist as well as soloist. His poignant opening to ‘Hang Around’ perfectly sets the scene for what follows, while his inspired excursions on ‘Boogie Stop Shuffle’ and ‘After You Stu’ are other highlights. Adrian Litvinoff is a bassist whose playing style has been shaped by his instinct as a composer. Always searching for the melodic complement to the other players, his lines climb and fall in response to the music, even when holding down a groove. Enjoy his accompaniment on ‘Faces and Places’ and ‘Step Lightly’ as well as his solos on ‘Grey Day’ and ‘Island’. Dave Balen on drums and percussion brings a history of musical exploration and immersion in many genres including Indian music. His approach to music (and to life) makes him an unselfish accompanist as well as a highly creative soloist – hear his multi-layered contribution to ‘Grey Day’ or the extraordinary percussion accompanying the bass solo in ‘Island’. Andra Sparks joins us for two numbers on the album. Andra’s voice is bell-like, clear and suffused with warmth, and she really knows how to get inside a lyric! Her contributions to ‘Hang Around’ and ‘Ode to Duke’ add freshness and polish to these numbers and enrich the album as a whole.
