This album starts with a tribute to three great blues players who influenced the world of electric guitar: BB King, Albert King, and Freddie King. After track one, the album stretches beyond the blues to explore elements of rock, R&B, jazz, and funk. This eclectic mix has it's roots in the blues. It might be descibed as instrumental "bluesion."
I hope you enjoy it --"KC"
"The closest description would be as if Larry Coryell got zapped by electric blues....genius by stripping the ecesses the and sticking to the essential while carvng out paths of a grand exploratory nature."
