Orcastra is Jon's newest CD, incorporating many new and varied sounds along with the Killer Horns to produce a sonic landscape that is as rich in groove, texture and detail as it is intellectually satisfying.
Jon's guitar style has been desribed as "Carlos Santana meets the Allman Brothers -- and they get in a fight." Jon shows off his best blues moves on Shredzilla, with a hint of reggae and a dash of funk.
Assisted by rock veterans Chet McCracken (Doobie Brothers) and Tim Bogert (Vanilla Fudge, Jeff Beck), Jon assembles an awesome power trio with a sound reminiscent of Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd.

With a sound that has been called "bizarrely intriguing, truly unique," Jon teams up with Hawaiian steel guitar ace Hank "The Hula" Mann to produce a new style of music -- Hulabilly -- imagine Don Ho jamming with Stevie Ray Vaughan.
