HAMM is equally thrilled, saying, "I am really excited to be playing with Joe and the band again! It's revisiting one of my most favorite and most important parts of my musical career. The band sounds awesome, I love the new tunes and I look forward to connecting with all my Satch fans around the World. It's OK to STUUUUUUUU again!"
Professor Satchafunkilus was produced through the creative envisioning of SATRIANI and John Cuniberti; guiding the musical talents of longtime drummer/percussionist Jeff Campitelli and reknowned bassist Matt Bissonette. A special addition to the album’s artist list is Joe’s own son, ZZ Satriani, playing the tenor sax.
Over the last two decades, SATRIANI has traveled the world, playing to sold-out crowds as both a headliner and as founder of the all-star “G3” guitar extravaganza. Of his 12 solo albums 2 went platinum and 4 gold with 15 Grammy nominations between them. This year Joe is nominated for Best Rock Instrumental Performance for the song "Always With Me, Always With You" from his album, Satriani LIVE!
Last year marked the 20th Anniversary of his groundbreaking album, Surfing with the Alien and was commemorated with new expanded edition in a meticulously restored two-disc set including the newly re-mastered album and a previously never-before-seen live show filmed at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1988.
