Barry Cleveland
The personal is the political for guitarist and composer Barry Cleveland. That perspective is evident on Hologramatron (MoonJune, 2010), his new album featuring songs that serve as a response to the socio-political and religious narratives woven by the voices dominating today's 24-hour news cycles. Cleveland is unafraid of telling it exactly as he sees it, with lyrics that delve deep into the paradoxical viewpoints that inform the morass of modern partisan discourse.

Hologramatron is only predictable in its unpredictability. It's a mostly vocal-based album that also includes four diverse instrumentals. The eclectic collection explores territory including progressive and psychedelic rock, world music, ambient textures, funk grooves, and metal. In addition to Cleveland's eight original pieces, the record contains two covers: Malvina Reynolds' anti-nuclear proliferation anthem “What Have They Done to the Rain" and Joe Meek's “Telstar."

All About Jazz newcomer and author of the remarkable new book, Innerviews: Music Without Borders (Abstract Logix, 2010), Anil Prasad spoke with Cleveland at length, about the recording of Hologramatron and bringing it to the concert stage, some of his most memorable interviews writing for Guitar Player, and much, much more, in the in-depth interview, Barry Cleveland: Beyond Convention, published today at All About Jazz.
