San Francisco-based guitarist George Cotsirilos unites with bassist Robb Fischer and drummer Ron Marabuto to create a mainstream guitar sound that will be music to your ears. Cotsirilos's affinity for the blues comes through nicely on ten compact tracks. The roster of the varied artists he has worked with include Pharaoh Sanders, Etta James, Chuck Israels, Jane Olivor, Mel Martin, and the R&B band The Whispers. George starts off with a bit of bop on "A Walk for Ethel," the solid "I Know You Know," displaying a delicate touch on Ivan Lins's "Coce Presenca," as well as on Fisher's tasty "Sambrosia" and the haunting "Chimera," Cotsirilos shows his dexterity on both acoustic and electric guitar--check out the fluid "1937," the brief but pretty "Justin Case," the smooth sound of "Blues For the J Man," plus Burke & Van Heusen's tender "But Beautiful," with the final brush stroke to this masterpiece being the strutting "Madrugadora." A nice clean, precise guitar sound that calls out loudly!
