Flying album cover
                                         ALBUM NOTES:
                                 In 2010, on July 3rd and 4th, the Bartron Tyler Group returned to perform at one of their favorite annual gigs,
                                 the Fillmore Street Jazz Festival in San Francisco, California. They had played the event many times over the
                                 years and had recorded their first live album there in 1994, “Fillmore Street”. The year before, in 2009, they had
                                 released their all-instrumental Beatles tribute album, “Yesterday Never Knows”. This album,
                                 Flying: Fillmore Street 2010 is a collection of their best performances at the festival. A retrospective of sorts,
                                 the album contains songs from all their other releases, from their debut CD to their latest, as well as one tune
                                 never before released: “A Clockwork Banana”.
                                 This album features John Bartron on acoustic and electric guitars and guitar synth; Mike Tyler on electric guitar;
                                 John Hasty on drums and percussion; and Joey Fabian on bass. The album was compiled and edited by Mike Tyler;
                                 special thanks to Robert Tassi for the audio mastering. The cover painting was done by Saul Levy.

Just About Amost There With the long awaited follow up to their 2002 CD “Like A Metaphor” this dynamic live band has strived to produce a fantastic sounding studio album while maintaining a sense of their popular and critically acclaimed festival and concert performances.
    From the straight ahead rock of “Smokes Like A Fish”, the fusion of Afro/Caribbean rhythms and synth guitar in “Comp Day”, the deep groove and soul-full, soaring electric guitar of “Model T” to the Sunday morning acoustic groove of “Ignorant(By)Design, “JUST ABOUT ALMOST THERE” is an album that touches down in many musical geographies while keeping a coherent focus on listenability.
    Completely self produced and recorded on digital home studios “JUST ABOUT ALMOST THERE” represents the collaboration of modern tech and heartfelt musical expression.

Notes from the album "Fillmore Street":

It was ten years ago when we released our second album, Fillmore Street. It was recorded over three days, July 2nd, 3rd and 4th, 1994, during the Fillmore Street Jazz and Art Festival in San Francisco. Each day we would play from about 10am until 6pm, taping each set directly from the sound board onto a little 2-track DAT recorder. Later, after listening through everything, we condensed the weekend down to our favorite performances. Although it is probably the quickest and easiest project we've ever worked on we've often had people tell us it's their favorite of our albums. We think that there are a few reasons for this. We had a great time playing that weekend and the sense of fun and musical interplay is very apparent. It's a very honest recording: there was absolutely no editing done on any of the live tracks on the album. It sounds exactly the way we sounded in those days. It's also a very clean sounding album: because we had no crowd microphones set up the audience is much less present when compared to other live albums. People are always surprised to learn that a few feet from where we were playing cars and buses were driving by; if you listen closely you might catch the sound of a car horn or the squeal of a MUNI bus brake.

"Meaty improvisation...a great example of dynamics, precision and flexibility." Modern Drummer

Like A Metaphor Released in 2002. The first album of ours to feature our bassist, Joey Fabian, many of the songs were recorded live in the studio as a quartet.  We're very proud of this album and feel it contains our strongest playing to date. People that have seen us perform might recognize some of the tunes: Unsafe At Any Speed, Stupid, But Lucky, How They Eat In Heaven, Zuzu's Petals (drummer Hasty's compositional debut), Our Towner, a cover of the Beatles' Don't Let Me Down, Gravity Assist, Plaid, Banana Leg, and The Whale's Footprint. We really think you should order this CD! Now!

“…slinky, sexy, animated, and multi-textured instrumental music…the diverse and brilliant arrangements-which make evocative use of acoustic and electric timbres-are further enlivened by the exquisite tones and cagey phrasing of guitarists John Bartron and Mike Tyler…for a peek into the ingenuity and heart of the ensemble, listen to how the guys interpret the Beatles’ ‘Don’t Let Me Down.’”
