Jazz/fusion guitarist Ron Bosse has released his brand new music video for “Afterburner”, the first single from his upcoming solo album. To view the video, visit his YouTube channel.
The original track was written in September, 2014 by Bosse & features many of his diverse musical influences which include Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Led Zeppelin, Pat Metheny, Wayne Shorter, Mike Stern, Gov’t Mule, Soundgarden and Alice in Chains. The song has a weighty, grunge/metal vibe while maintaining a distinct jazz structure that begins with a brief melody evolving into an extended solo section.
The video is set amidst a dramatic, sparsely lit background that slowly reveals Bosse’s full-throttle guitar playing. Filmed at Ron’s production studio, Bosse Studios, the video features dynamic video footage through the use of cranes, ladders and glide-cams.
Grammy nominated guitarist and journalist Jim Ferguson of Jazz Times Magazine calls Bosse “A Berklee College alum with considerable guitar chops”. Lee Prosser of the Jazz Review says “Bosse is the definition of jazz guitar genius.” Seth Rogovoy of Berkshires Week says “Bosse uses his axe as an atmospheric paintbrush”.
