A Diverse Collection of Guitar-based Masterpieces!
Blues, Rock, Jazz, Soul, World.... this album has a little bit of everything, with the common denominator being great guitar work, and great musicality overall. From the smooth and stunning sweetness of "Behind Blue Skies" to the in your face attitude of "Powderburn" this album dishes up great guitar tones, tasty guitar licks, and sublime nuances that are worthy of any guitar-lover's music catalog. Great variety, fantastic playing, well recorded.
