Jeff Kollman- Shedding Skin (re-mastered)*

Album Review
Marmaduke Records


By: Allyson Kingsley, Music Journalist

Boston Rock Radio


Shedding Skin is an amazingly soothing body of instrumental work that is truly a terrific listening experience.  Jeff Kollman was raised in Toledo, OH and currently resides in L.A.


He has shredded his axe with Glenn Hughes of Deep Purple fame, Cosmosquad and the Bombastic Meatbats (feat. Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers), as well as multiple other session works.


Every note on this album is played with immaculate precision. “Shedding Skin” and “Fat, Mean and Nasty” are smoky blues-based listening. “Blues for Pop” has a light jazzy taste and a touch of swing. “Sheer Drama” and “The X Factor” are aptly radiant, edgier, rock and roll compositions. “Redeye Romp” and “My Guitar Gently Screams” are deliciously heavy and I sure do love heavy. Jeff's roster of captivating musicians is well worth mentioning: Dale Grisa and Roger Burn, pianists, Shane Galaas, drums and bassists Kevin Cohen and Barry Sparks.


These instrumental treats are laden with tight rhythms, blistering guitar solos and all stand on their own-each with its own personality. This gem is rooted in prog rock but pulls from various other genres and styles to create a style defying, timeless classic work of art.






*(originally issued in 1999 and now available as a digipak CD and digital download.)
