At Last!
I've been wanting to hear more of Ray Gomez's amazing guitar work, and I'm so glad to see this release. I hope he releases more music soon. Great stuff!

One of a Kind
Ray Gomez's playing always had a bit of an "urgency" to it for me. Like someone lit a fire under his butt and turns it up and down at the right place & at the right time .Like he is jamming but he isn't. Out of control-control.
Fire, and slinky abandon... kinda Hendrixy ( oops ,,,I compared, I hate that,,,oh well..not a bad comparison)
Great cut . I've followed Ray for years,,and that is just RAY. A true innovator & one of a kind.
Please,,continue on Ray. Many are waiting for what's next. Myself included.

Ray Gomez At His Best
Sweet Life 1991 starts off in measured beats with some of the coolest unexpected chords you've ever heard. It sounded as if Roy Buchanan sat down with a bottle of bourbon and went beyond himself. Really nice tone and measured rhythm like gliding on cruise control. Then a noticeable tonal shift at 4:30 where Ray does a hyper leap to light speed, with a ferocity of creative blues wailing like you've never heard or perhaps imagine Hendrix standing on the edge of stage, blowing your mind. Ray demonstrates complete control of the guitar, giving us all we want, yet never an excess of information. Very creative playing and fresh sounding which is not that easy to do in a bluesy pocket, where most guitarists have a tendency to sound clichéd. Sweet Life 1991 represents Ray Gomez at his best, giving the listener great dynamics, space, blistering riffs, yet knowing when to apply the brakes, at times like a big spaceship skipping on the surface. I highly recommend this song for your blues, funk, jazz collection. The song delivers on all fronts.
