Bluesy instrumental guitar rock.

If you want metal and shred, look elsewhere. This is laid-back instrumental blues-rock. The songs are well-written, and Satchmo's playing is so smooth. A great CD for relaxing by yourself.

One of Satch's best! For the open-minded ONLY...Bluesy and stripped-down

One of Satch's best! For the open-minded ONLY... Definitely not a typical shred-fest. Bluesy and stripped-down. This was actually a pretty bold album for Satch, a change of direction, and obviously (and unfortunately), not well received from SHRED fans craving for a few new "SUMMER SONGS". For those with open years, it's a great record, though. Tons of soulful playing, an a live-raw sound to it. The only 2 songs I truly don't dig is Killer Bee Bop and Look My Way. They sound forced. Manu Katche adds his usual finesse to his tracks. Nathan East supports well too, just more in the background. GET IT!

Joe at his virtuosic best

When I first picked up this CD upon its release back in '95, I wasn't sure what to make of it as it was such a departure from his previous material. But over the years it has become one of my favorites. I love the live, stripped-down feel of the album. Although Joe's long-time musical cohort Jeff Campitelli is a great drummer in his own right, I think that Manu Katche's drumming virtuosity really pushed Joe to higher highs on this one. Must-haves here are tracks 1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 9 , and 11.
