I'm always a bit wary of guitar albums. Will a jazz guitarist really show up? Certainly one did in George Cotsirilos. He plays gimmick-free guitar, and his trio, with Robb Fisher on bass and Ron Marabuto on drums, cooks up several nicely conceived originals, moving with ease between swinging post bop to shimmering ballads. And always using space effectively, surely the sign of a veteran player. Three standards played wonderfully well included ?The Way You Look Tonight,? ?Without a Song? and a beautiful acoustic solo on ?What Kind of Fool Am I.? It's straight down the middle of the jazz highway, a nice place to be.
