Great Jazz Recording
James J. Phillips | Tampa, FL United States | 10/16/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I could tell from the first cut that this was a great jazz record. The music on this disk packs a real edge with some excellent drum and bass work. His guitar sound on this record is very unique and the accoustic sound works as a great front to the hard charging bass and drums. He has two driummers and two bass players Marvin Smitty Smith on drums and Dave Holland along with Charnet Moffet on bass. The other drummer is very good but I am unfamiliar with his work. Kevin got to a very cutting edge place on this recording and plays some solos with amazing speed. Anyone who likes the sound of Pat Metheny or John Scofield will be amazed at how good of a guitar player Kevin is."

"I came across this title at a used record store, and I love it. The CD is creative, smartly crafted, and beautiful. The assembly of musicians playing here pretty much leaves nothing else to be desired - they really ignite your soul from the beginning and keep the fire burning to the end. 8 out of 9 songs are Kevin's own compositions, and it's pure jazz right up there with the best of them.

Kevin's guitar workouts are brilliant: smooth, quick, and beautiful, with varying styles and sound textures. He uses both electrical and acoustic guitars, and I thought they were well-chosen for the styles of the songs he's written. Some of his acoustic tones sound like a Spanish guitar.

The rhythm section is excellent throughout. On the hard-driving jazz tracks, they really set it on fire. I was quite impressed, even having heard some of the biggest names in jazz. These pieces have character and spunk. This is my first record of Kevin's, and I think I'll be looking for more.

Highly recommended."
