This is the list of the sessions I know Paul Gilbert appears... I've classified them into several categories:
The album contains mostly songs written by Willie
Basse, as well as a rendition of The Supremes' "Stop! In The Name Of
Love". One of the songs is co-written by George Lynch.
My guess is that Paul plays here because of his
involvement with GIT, where Jeff Berlin used to teach bass. Berlin, a bass
master, someday will have his own page in my Olympus. This solo album contains
great work, with an adaptation of a classic piece by Bach, as well as a
superb rendition of Robert Johnson's song "Crossroads", very faithful to
Cream's rendition, but the bass performing the solo that Clapton used to
do on guitar! The guitarist in all the tracks is the great Frank Gambale,
but Paul Gilbert appears in two tracks, "Crossroads" and "Freight train
shuffle". A fantastic album for fusion lovers. Another musicians in it:
Buddy Miles on vocals, Tris Imbodden on drums, and the late Jeff Porcaro
It has been recently released a brand new album
by Gregg Bissonette, and Paul Gilbert is in the credits too. I don't have
the album, but it seems the only track where Paul Gilbert appears is the
same "The vulgar boatman" from the former promo album. Other musicians
involved: Scott Henderson, Steve Lukather, Andy Summers, Ty Tabor, Steve
Vai, Michael Thompson, George Bernhardt, Doug Bossi and Mike Miller.
Guitar Zeus is the first album, and it contains guest appearance by Paul Gilbert. He plays in one track, as well as in a bonus track present in the European release ("Where you belong"). With the basic band of Carmine Appice (drums), Tony Franklin (bass), Kelly Keeling (vocals, keyboards) + guest guitar soloists: Steve Morse (now in Deep Purple), Paul Gilbert, Yngwie Malmsteen, Neal Schon, Brian May, Doug Aldrich, Jennifer Batten (usually playing for Michael Jackson), Ty Tabor, Slash, Ted Nugent, Elliot Easton (from The Cars), Mick Mars, and the great Leslie West.
Guitar Zeus 2 - Channel Mind Radio
is his most recent release, and it includes guest appearances by: Denny
Laine (in the song 'Cruisin''), Stevie Salas (from his own band
Stevie Salas Colorcode), Zakk Wylde (from Ozzy Osbourne band and now, with
his own band Pride And Joy), Warren DeMartini (ex-Ratt), Richie Sambora
(from Bon Jovi), Stuart Smith, Ted Nugent, Neal Schon (from Journey), C.C.
DeVille (from Poison), John Norum, Ty Tabor (from King's X), Dweezil Zappa,
Vivian Campbell (from Def Leppard), Kenji Kitajima. Where is Paul? Well,
the Japanese version of the album has two bonus tracks, and that's where
Paul Gilbert appears, in a track called "Where you belong".
Another guitar-ace collective album. We can find here Reb Beach (from Winger, now with Alice Cooper), Richie Sambora (from Bon Jovi), Yngwie Malmsteen, Paul Gilbert, Elliott Easton (from The Cars), Zakk Wylde (from Ozzy Osbourne band, now with own band, Pride & Glory), Nuno Bettencourt (ex-Extreme), Alex Skolnick (ex-Testament and Savatage), Richie Kotzen (ex-Poison), Albert Collins, Dickey Betts & Warren Haynes (from Allman Brothers Band), Reeves Gabrels (ex-Tin Machine), and Earl Slick (accompanied by Terry Bozzio).
The song Paul performs is called "I understand completely". He plays all the instruments there.
A Deep Purple tribute. I love this album, it's fantastic from start to finish. Great musicians involved here:
Singers: Kelly Keeling, Kip Winger, Glenn Hughes, Joe Lynn Turner, Robert Mason, Don Dokken, Jeff Scott Soto, Tony Harnell.
Guitarists: Yngwie Malmsteen, Tony MacAlpine, John Norum, Richie Kotzen, Paul Gilbert, Russ Parrish, Reb Beach, Mike Varney, Vinnie Moore
The rhythm section in every track is: Russ Parrish (rhythm guitar), Todd Jensen (bass), the superb Jens Johansson (keyboards. Hi, Jens!), and Deen Castronovo (drums).
Paul Gilbert performs one track, "Maybe I'm a leo", singing and playing lead guitar:
WOW! Jeff Beck is worshipped by lots of guitarists, as we can notice here. Guitar players to appear: Bruce Bouillet (once he was Paul colleague in Racer X), Vivian Campbell & Phil Collen (from Def Leppard), Warren DeMartini (ex-Ratt, and later in Whitesnake), Amir Derakh (from Rough Cutt), Jake E. Lee (from Badlands), Steve Lukather (from Toto), George Lynch (from Dokken), Mick Mars (from Motley Crue), Stevie Salas (from own band Stevie Salas Colorcode), Walter Trout (from ?), plus Paul Gilbert. Superb backing musicians in the tracks: Russ Parrish (bass here), Brett Tugle (keyboards), Tony Franklin (bass), Guy Mann-Dude, Billy Sherwood (keyboards), and singers: Paul Shortino, Sass Jordan, Dante Marchi, John Corabi (now in a new band with Kiss fired members, called Union).
Paul Gilbert performs in one track, "Heart full of soul", with this lineup:
My favourite guitar work in the album is performed
by Amir Derakh, Vivian Campbell, Steve Lukather and Jake E. Lee.
Their first CD, released in Japan, was titled The Szuters... and Paul produced it.. He also did 3 songs on the latest CD American Pop. Mike Szuter is now on tour as a member of Paul Gilbert band, playing guitars and keyboards.
Last week, I read about it in an old magazine, but now I can't find that magazine again! :)
