CD Reviews

One of the best fusion albums ever!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"plain and simple this is an amazing cd from start to finish. chad covers all styles and plays them flawless. he also knows how to put a great gruop together as well. i will agree that this is a holdsworth "showcase" in many respects but it also has some of his best playing in years and he is just restrained enough to not lose the listener, this is a must have for any serious jazz/fusion fan. anyone claiming this is muzak is deaf and should stick to there kenny g cd's."
Adding to "A hidden gem" review - great drum sound

"Please read "A hidden gem" review. Someone has written a great review expressing very similar thoughts to mine about this surprisingly good album. (I stumbled upon it in a $2 sale bin - what joy finding this gem amongst the trash)

What I wished to add to the review, "A hidden gem" was the recording quality is quite striking. I have a entry level audio setup - Denon amp, NAD CD player and Acoustic research speakers. I use this album particularly, the track "Hidden places" to demonstrate a great drum audiophile recording. I also happen to think this is the stand out track and up there with my favourite Holdsworth tracks.

There is also a texture and a distortion on Holdworth's guitar sound that is quite unique to this album.

If you like fusion/jazz-rock then this album is indeed a hidden gem."

"This project has a great four piece lineup of Chad with Allan Holdsworth, Jim Cox and Jimmy Johnson recorded at Capitol Studios in 1991."
