Avi Bortnick - Clean Slate
"Clean Slate" is the debut CD release as a leader from guitarist Avi Bortnick. Avi is best known for his musical association with jazz guitar legend John Scofield, whom he has toured with steadily since January of 2000.
With Scofield, Avi has come to the forefront of the international music scene by performing hundreds of shows to packed houses and festival stages worldwide. Avi's signature funk rhythm guitar sound has become an identifiable trademark of the Scofield Band sound, and Avi has been featured prominently on two Scofield Verve CD's, "Überjam", and "Up All Night". Avi composed material for both albums, and is also credited as co-producer on "Up All Night".
Now Avi steps out on his own with his brand new self-produced CD called "Clean Slate". Drawing upon years of diverse musical experiences, including the Scofield Band, African ensembles, Brazilian bands, jazz groups, and the underground funk sensation "What It Is", Avi creates a sonic landscape of appealing rhythmic textures and intoxicating moods on "Clean Slate".
Guitar fans in particular will be ecstatic to hear the versatility in Avi's playing on "Clean Slate". This is the first real opportunity Avi's growing legion of fans have had to hear the essence of his musicianship on record. While Avi's reputation has primarily been based on the fact that he is one of the world's funkiest rhythm guitarists, on "Clean Slate" listeners get to hear Avi's unique perspective on the potential of the guitar in many different areas of playing, and in much greater depth.
