Still working on that hot first release.



Solomon is committed to keeping alive the tradition of power trio rock and roll. The songs fuse the driving rhythmic variations of jazz with the expansive tonalities of the classical world to build musically evolved rock and roll. The lyrics of Solomon L. Silber, guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter add yet another dimension to the compositions with their autobiographical and political observations. The band was founded by Mr. Silber and Scott Allan Robinson, drummer, in 2004.

Mr Robinson was a jazz drum prodigy from Kansas City. Before he was sixteen, he had performed drum battles with Max Roach and Louie Bellson as well as played live with Charlie Mingus,Hank Jones, Clark Terry, Zoot Sims, All Kohn, Slide Hampton, Bill Watrous, Milt Hinton, among others. Mr. Robinson performed on a Grammy nominated album by the nationally acclaimed Toshiko Akiyoshi-Lew Tabackin Band. In 1995, after studying at the distinguished Curtis School of Music, Mr. Robinson was playing percussion and drum set with the Philadelphia Orchestra when he met Pat Martino, innovator of the hard bop school of jazz. Since that time, Mr. Robinson has been performing internationally with Mr. Martino and can be heard on his latest release for Blue Note Records entitled "Remember-A Tribute to Wes Montgomery."

Solomon L. Silber began his career as a classical guitarist, beginning his training when he was five years old. He competed in many distinguished classical competitions, becoming the only guitarist to win the Greenfield Competition and performed with the Philadelphia Orchestra at age fifteen. Soon after, he began his three year apprenticeship with Maestro Oscar Ghilia, student of the late great Andres Segovia, in Sienna, Italy, at the Accademia Musicale Chigiana. After a brief stint at Yale University, Solomon focused all his efforts on the development of his unique musical and lyrical style.

The band was completed with the addition of bassist Michael T. Machinist, Mr. Silber's cousin. Mr. Machinist is an accomplished recording engineer who works actively in the New York scene, and has co-produced with Mr. Silber the group's debut album.

On stage the musicianship of the trio becomes intensely visceral. The complex musical conversations between Mr. Robinson's explosive drumming, and Mr. Silber's idiosyncratic voice and virtuostic and emotional guitar, are rooted by Mr. Machinist's bass. Together Solomon creates an exhilarating performance experience.
