Review: Guitarist Okazaki is one of the most inventive musicians on the scene today, and much in demand. On this, his sixth album, He shows of his prowess within a different approach to jazz: all solos are contained within the tracks without one musician or another taking the lead. Each track is complex in composition, inviting the listener to settle in and really listen.
