CD Reviews

Not just for jazz guitar fans
Proggy McGee | Newark Ohio | 09/07/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am pleasantly surprised at this wonderful album. All of the artists on here are top-notch. I was expecting alot of blues and jazz solos from Duke Robillard, but was blown away by the notable musicianship from every player on the album. Check out the organ solo on track one, the trumpet solo on track 3, and the tenor sax throughout most of the album. I could go on, but rest assured that every player will dazzle you at some point. Highly recommended for fans of jazz and blues."
