Hans Luchs is a fantastic Chicago guitarist with a new disc out titled Time Never Pauses. With his stellar band - Stu Mindeman on piano, Clark Sommers on bass, George Fludas on drums, and Shaun Johnson on trumpet - they work their way through a program of mostly Luchs's originals. "Hello Janssen" is the most exciting tune here, with a drum solo for the ages at the tail end. "Der Lumenmeister" and "30 Rue des Martyrs" both grabbed my ear for having arrangements with some twists and turns to them. I think you're gonna dig this one!
