Mark Diomede & The Juggling Suns Project - Regulus (CD, self-released, 2015)



A veteran from the jam bands scene in the USA, Mark Diomede launched Solar Circus in the mid-80s in New York, covering the Grateful Dead among others along with a few originals. The band evolved in the early 90s into Juggling Suns, touring, playing and releasing records for nearly two decades. One of those records caught our ears in 1997, 'Living On The Edge Of Change' (reviewed in French here), quite close to a 1990s Phish live recording… Fast-forward to 2009 and the band's final release 'Zero Zero Eight', a few collaborations, and in the summer of 2011 Juggling Suns is reformed into Mark Diomede & The Juggling Suns Project, with old and new friends joining the musical fray, and this new album, 'Regulus' being self-released at the beginning of 2015. Featuring guitarist extraordinaire Keller Williams, keyboardist Jason Crosby (Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Susan Tedeschi Band), pedal steel guitarist Buddy Cage (New Riders of the Purple Sage), guitarist Scott Murawski (Max Creek, Mike Gordon), violonist Tim Carbone (Railroad Earth) and keyboardist Tom Constanten (Grateful Dead, Dose Hermanos), this original studio recording has been years in the making and displays an eclectic range of kind music styles: jam rock, psychedelic blues, trance-rock, bluegrass and more… A refreshing blast of purely American cosmic music to expand your mind to - welcome back Mark!!
