commented on the release: When one listens to the powerful guitar playing of Roman Miroschnichenko, it is easy to be reminded of John McLaughlin, Al DiMeola, Paco DeLucia
and John McLaughlin
during his Mahavishnu days, but it soon becomes apparent that Miroschnichenko has his own sound within fusion, setting the standard for XXI century fusion guitar. While he is never shy to cut loose, he also uses subtlety, mood variations and creativity throughout, mixing together tight arrangements with pure spontaneity. The Sixth Sense
is an impressive effort that can be a prized acquisition for the guitarist’s many fans."
Currently Miroshnichenko is completing joint album New Shapes
together with Danish guitarist Henrik Andersen, featuring special guests: Trilok Gurtu
, Gumbi Ortiz
, Peter Lockett
