The Aching Hunger – Phase II shows features Steve Vai and The Metropole Orchestra in Groningen, Holland on July 1st and 2nd. These was the only two shows in 2005, and featured new material not previously performed. In the hour long main part of the performance, taking up the first 12 tracks, the orchestra backs Vai up on some of his familiar tunes from earlier albums such as Passion and Warfare (Answers, Liberty, For The Love Of God) and Real Illusions: Reflections (Lotus Feet), set to full orchestral instrumentation by a team of orchestrators. Vai describes a section as a tribute to his mentor, Frank Zappa, but in truth much in the orchestral works recalls Zappa’s music. Whether Vai will be able to make a transition from heavy metal guitar virtuoso to composer remains to be seen, but this show demonstrates that his music benefits from being transposed to an orchestra and that, with the right staging and mixing, even aggressive electric guitar playing can work with an orchestra.
