Arlen Roth's Tele Masters Album Release Party
Arlen Roth's Tele Masters Album Release Party
The Cutting Room is honored to present an evening with Arlen Roth as he and his band perform songs off of his new album, Tele Masters, for the first time in front of a New York audience. The guitar world can't stop raving about Arlen's latest endeavor and now it's your turn to experience it live.

Acclaimed guitar master Arlen Roth has teamed up with a host of fellow Telecaster greats to release his latest album, Tele Masters. Joining Roth on the album are Joe Bonamassa, Steve Cropper, Jerry Donahue, Vince Gill, Johnny Hiland, Bill Kirchen, Albert Lee, Brent Mason, Brad Paisley, Jack Pearson, Will Ray, Redd Volkaert and Steve Wariner.

Recorded mostly in Nashville, Tele Masters was produced by Grammy-winner Tom Hambridge, who also played drums on the sessions. The all-star line-up of notable players who also appeared on the sessions included Cindy Cashdollar on lap steel guitar, and acoustic guitar wizards Billy Panda and Bryan Sutton, plus Hambridge’s long-time bassist, Tommy MacDonald. Although predominantly instrumental, the album also includes vocal contributions from Steve Cropper, Jack Pearson, Sweet Mikey C. and Arlen Roth’s daughter, Lexie.

“This was such a rewarding experience for me to make,” says Roth about the new album. “I got to do some Telecaster duets with the best of the best when it comes to Tele playing. This album is dedicated to the great ‘Tele Masters’ of the past: Albert Collins, Danny Gatton, Mike Bloomfield, Roy Buchanan, Clarence White, Roy Nichols, Don Rich, Jimmy Bryant, Luther Perkins, Muddy Waters and so many more.”

The mix of songs included in the repertoire of Tele Masters features everything from blues, rock, pop and country classics (“Remington Ride,” “Key to the Highway,” “Rumble,” “Promised Land,” “Satisfied Mind,” “Mrs. Robinson,”) to timeless chestnuts (“Ghost Riders in the Sky” and “Tennessee Waltz”) and a number of sizzling original instrumental workouts (“Bunky,” “Roadworthy,” “Funky Mama,” “Tuff Tele” and “A Minor Thing”). Of special note is the track “Joe’s Blues,” a tribute to the great Albert Collins, which features the triple-threat guitar assault of Arlen Roth, Joe Bonamassa and former Allman Brothers Band guitarist Jack Pearson.

Guitar legend Arlen Roth is considered one of the most influential guitarists of all time, and during the course of his 45+year career has toured the world and recorded with an amazing list of artists, including Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, John Prine, Phoebe Snow, Levon Helm, Ry Cooder, Eric Andersen, Dusty Springfield, Janis Ian, Don McLean and The Bee Gees, among others. His teaching and creation of Hot Licks Video pioneered music and guitar education all over the world, with his videos having sold in excess of 2.5 million copies. His current online lessons and blogs for Gibson.com have over 1 million followers. Arlen was also the man behind the legendary blues film, Crossroads, creating the guitar
parts, directing the guitar scenes and working alongside fellow guitarist Ry Cooder and actor Ralph Macchio during the film’s production. He was voted in the “Top 50 Acoustic
