Talk To Joe enhancements

i've just finished making modifications to the T2J section here so it will load quicker than before. it's somewhat expotential depending on how many pages you have to read. ie, if you go to read ALL messages, it will be a *lot* faster now.

i also made it so hopping around a large number of pages is a bit nicer instead of it just spewing out 200 page links, you only see 20 at a time and can skip forward/backward another 20 by using the >> and <<

oh yeah, you can also do some more extensive use of the link tag. that was added the other day and you can see example on the bottom of the page when posting a new message.

Hello everyone! A lot has happened in the months since our last newsletter so we've got a lot of news for you. Included is a brief table of contents for this newsletter and then a message from Joe to all of you!

In this issue:



It's hard to believe the new CD is finished, wrapped up and ready to go, it all went by so quickly...We had nothing but fun and good times in the studio, and it really comes through on the recordings... The photos in the CD booklet will give you a hint of how silly we are when working on "serious" music!... But, seriously now, the band came through with brilliant performances, and the crew worked out all the details to get it all on tape, or, the hard drives, as the case was...Check out the new SATRIANI.COM for details on everyone connected with the latest CD...

Cheers to webmaster Jon Luini for the new and very cool website! He will be adding features weekly to keep us all glued to our computers... Speaking of computers, I just noticed last night that my DVD-RAM drive has its left and right audio orientation reversed! Strange, huh? Apple is sending me a new one...

I'll be bringing a digital camera on tour this time and I promise to send crazy on the road photos to Jon for posting on the site, honest!

Speaking of tours...We have our Euro set list together, but there is still time to influence our North American set starting in August....Oh, and yes, we will be playing "Crushing Day"...Joe...

We are happy to report that once again we began offering the first single, Starry Night, online in its entirety before it was released to radio via Joe's appearance on Rockline June 10th. Click on the above URL to the SBM discography page to access the full song streams.

Although we first made "Starry Night" available on SATRIANI.COM on June 9th, it is also over at Epic Records' site for Joe as well as in their "Artist Of The Week" feature which is currently spotlighting Joe.

Circuit City is offering a special *download* version of Starry Night starting on June 23rd from their downloads area. We'll provide a link from SATRIANI.COM once it is available.

Microsoft's Windows Media web sites will also be promoting a stream of the single this week at various times.


As further appreciation to all of your support, we've also arranged with Sony/Epic for an exclusive full-song stream of "Mind Storm", one of the heaviest songs on the album. It'll be available on SATRIANI.COM starting June 24th!


For those of you who want to hear a little more than excerpts before rushing out and picking up a copy of the album, have no fear! We've partnered with our good friends over at Apple's QuickTime group to do a listening party of the album in it's entirety which will loop for 48 hours. It will start at 10:00AM PST on June 25th and end at 10:00AM PST on June 27th.

In addition to hearing the entire album, you also will get to hear exclusive introductions to each song by Joe himself, giving a little bit of background into each track.

Starting the 25th, look for a prominent link on SATRIANI.COM as well as different areas of!


J&R Music is also providing an exclusive *download* of Oriental Melody from their web site. Again, we'll provide a link on SATRIANI.COM once we have the date it's available and a direct URL!

We ask all of you fans to help out by calling your local radio station and requesting "Starry Night" on your station. If they are more receptive to a heavier song, try asking for Mind Storm instead.


As you have probably come to expect with Joe, with a new album comes new contests and Strange Beautiful Music is no exception! Here's a quick rundown on the contests we've already got lined up, or going on:

Like we did in the past, we'll be giving out some autographed copies of Strange Beautiful Music as well as a tour t-shirt to lucky folks on SATRIANI.COM.

An updated look along with the style of Strange Beautiful Music, a re-vamped Talk To Joe section, expanded band/crew information, and of course information and streaming music from the new album! Check it out today :}

A new book, "Streaming Audio: The FezGuys' Guide", includes a case study that takes a look into SATRIANI.COM's use of streaming audio. If you are interested in streaming audio, or are looking to hone your skills, you'll find this book helpful (covers MP3, QuickTime, RealMedia, Windows Media). For more info, check out:

Full disclosure: In addition to working with Joe's online activities, I'm also one of the FezGuys and just couldn't resist the chance to profile Joe's web site in my book and he was kind enough to allow me to do so. Mea culpa.

Thanks for your continued support of all things Joe!

Joe w/ Spinal Tap pics...
We've managed to finally get our hands on some rare photos of Joe when he joined the legendary Spinal Tap on stage back in June of 2001 in San Francisco. You can check them out at /2000/road/lwpg.cgi?dir=2001-06-10. Thanks to Steve Jennings for taking and sending these photos our way. SF natives will usually notice him up in the pit during Satch shows, so make sure you give him some space! :}

Mexico G3 Dates RE-Postponed


We are very sorry to have to announce that the upcoming G3 concerts in Mexico City and Monterrey are to be postponed once again.

Due to the uncertainties caused by the terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, DC, and the recent threat made to Americans worldwide, we feel that it would be unsafe to travel during this time of declared war on America and its citizens.

While we are very unhappy to have to disappoint our fans in Mexico, we cannot request that our fellow musicians and crew place themselves in any jeopardy, nor can we expect their families to be favorable about them doing so.

We do however, promise that we will bring G3 to Mexico very soon, as soon as we feel the situation is safe for all parties involved.

We thank you all for your understanding, patience and consideration in this time of World unrest.
