Review: versatile guitarist and his quartet perform a variety of jazz styles and they do them all well. On tracks 6-10, the group expands with the addition of 5 horn players. All originals with the exception of #10, where they breathe new life into Caravan.
If You Like: Kenny Burrell, John McLaughlin (electric), Al Di Meola (electric)
Favorite Tracks: (2) Blues In New Hues (4) Blue and Grey Waltz (6) When The Ink Ran Dry (8) Portrait for Mingus (10) Caravan
