MUSIC REVIEW BY DS, Western Australian Guitar Player Society

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Always great to hear John play in such an interactive trio! The CD features tunes written by jazz composers/players. "Black Eyes" is a Wayne Shorter tune. The guitar solo has nice triplets and chordal passages, nice electric bass solo follows before guitar and drum trades. "Three French Nuns" by Stowell shows a more angular and moody side to his playing. "Chan's Song" is by Herbie Hancock, it is a feature for bass with some lovely understated guitar playing. "Contours" is by bassist Johnson, who plays a great solo on the upright, with John's solo showing intensity without ever rushing. "Windchaser" is an open time tune by Stowell and features free-wheeling interplay, a real strength on this trio. Tracks 6 are 8 are by Johnson, contemporary and interesting writing, "Lifelines" featuring acoustic guitar. Track 9 is Coltrane's tune "Resolution" which gets an unusual reading...open and funky, the tune is only really played at the end! Lastly "Silent Photographer," the title track is an acoustic open ballad and a feature for John's wonderful playing. Great CD all around.
