"Major Impacts" is a new collection of original compositions inspired by the musicians who most influenced Steve Morse. You'll find all instrumental tunage inspired by impact bands and players such as Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, The Byrds, Jimmy Page, John McLaughlin, The Rolling Stones, Mountain, Eric Johnson, Alex Lifeson, George Harrison, The Allman Brothers Band, Kansas and Yes. Morse states, "The challenges were there - like trying to give the impression of a guitarist in a vocal band with an original piece of music that doesn't use lyrics. And what are the components of a style? How to reflect those without actually repeating myself? The solution was to use familiar tempos, phrasing, instrumentation, and reminiscent themes that would be literally original but obviously intended to imitate. If part of "Major Impacts" reminds you of another tune, you can be pretty sure that it was intended. I hope you enjoy it."
