Cannata Reaches Back To Classic Songs On My Back Pages Volume 1
New Haven, CT–February 9, 2009-From his days with Jasper Wrath, Arc Angel, and a brilliant solo career, Jeff Cannata has been at the forefront of the progressive rock movement and the latest recording technologies.
Cannata is the DIY indie artists of the highest magnitude - writing, recording, playing, and producing his own music at the Oxford Circus Studios in Connecticut. Besides developing and recording his own projects, the multi-talented artist engineers and produces many other emerging talents.
With the recent release of My Back Pages Volume 1, Cannata reasserts his position as one of the premier recording artists today. It has been two years since the celebrated Mysterium Magnum came out and this time Jeff decided to take a different road and search his soul for the songs that inspired him to choose a life in music. Although it was difficult to choose the tracks for the recording, he left the door open to the possibility of releasing another volume in the future.
There are 14 tracks on My Back Pages Volume 1 and everyone is a masterpiece given new life and meaning by Cannata. Music fans will instantly recognize and relate to fantastic covers of tracks like “Eight Miles High” and “Turn Turn Turn”, while progressive rock enthusiast will delight in the Cannata translations of the Jethro Tull classics “Mother Goose” and “My Sunday Feeling” then find great satisfaction with the incredible renditions of King Crimson’s “In The Court of the Crimson King” and the Pink Floyd track “On The Turning Away”.

Bio

Following the release of “Mysterium Magnum”
and coming from a Progressive Rock background, I began to explore the idea of recreating
some of the music from the past that had inspired
me to make music my passion in life. The songs,
the production, the sound, and most importantly,
the 60's and the 70's were witness to ground breaking
vision. Choosing 13 or so songs to record turned
out to be quite a challenge. I searched the planet, to
select a diverse collection of Classic Psychedelic, Folk Rock, and
Progressive Music, that for me, defined the times.

I was committed to staying true to the Spirit of the songs,
and in many cases, searched for the instruments and sounds
used in the original recordings. In the decades since these
songs were first recorded, technology has advanced to the
point that there are few limitations. It was the idea of
capitilizing on these advances, that made this such an
exciting project..........." My Back Pages "
