ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bob Russell's music has been described as sounding like Jeff Beck, Pat Martino, Pat Metheny, John Scofield, Larry Carlton, and Jim Hall.

Obviously, that's impossible.

But it does sound like Bob Russell. A guitarist for over forty years, Russell has heard and admired a lot of guitar playing on both jazz and rock fronts. The music on Watch This! reflects that diversity. Clear, singing jazz sounds, warm nylon-string acoustic guitar work, high-gain rock tones - all these elements are present. The music is harmonically quite rich at times, but no "concept" is ever allowed to take precedence over the songs themselves.

Is it jazz? Is it rock? Fusion?

"I don't care!", says Bob Russell. "It's just guitar music, made the way I want to hear it. I think of it as modern jazz guitar. You can call it what you like. I hope you'll enjoy it!"

great cd. amazing player!!!!!!!!!!

Allen Davis

A tasty buffet of guitar sound.
The guitar sings...and Bob Russell speaks the language. These tunes cut a shimmering cross-section of musical possibility. The voice and style are personal, but the message universal. Keep 'em coming!

Smooth and Vibrant
Wonderful jazz guitar...Bright sounds, interesting, listenable style! So calming. Keep those strings warm, Bob.

This is fresh! This is an exciting collection of great original material from Bob Russell. This guy has all the tone, all the chops but it's all about the music. He covers a lot of stylistic ground but he's a jazz dude and that's the way I like it! He's completely proficient on bass and keys as well - he just needs to spend some time on his drumming. ;)

Excellent Variety and Great Vibe
This CD shows that Bob Russell can play in all genres with skill, style and can create that "just right" vibe. Highly recommended.
