Wherever We Go

2006-02-20

Another guitar led jazz group, does anyone else see a trend developing in’06? This is solid stuff, though like a lot of modern guitar jazz it goes for more of a jam band style improvisation than the complex chord challenging solos of greats like Kenny Burrell or contemporaries like Scofield. mostly mid-tempo grooves that are all pleasant enough, and only one track over six minutes in lengh (the title track clocks in at 8:40) so you can find a place for it in almost any set. But dig deeper in the library if you are looking for something that pushes boundaries. Go forth and play jazz!!
