Yeah Robben Ford is one of the greatest blues players that not simply mastered the art of blues playing but has an undeniable style of his own that can be recognized in just a single note. Jimmy Haslip obviously dear to RF's heart and everyone who appreciates his incredible talents as a bass player that can design such quality pockets with drummers of all genres. Gary Novak who also occupies one of the coveted chairs as an in demand drummer such as Vinnie Colaiuta,Simon Phillips,Steve Gadd etc, melds together with Haslip to create a tight and intricate rhythm section. But what astonishes me is the influence that Michael Landau has on these three giants of all styles. Seems like in their spare time,any number of todays virtuosos like Jimmy Herring...Scott Henderson....Greg Howe.....Rod Morganstien.....Steve Smith.....Omar Hakim.......T Lavitz......Jimmy Johnson.......Victor Wooten (get my drift) . These guys put out jazz-rock-funk-fusion cds that wow each other. But this is not one of those projects. Landau, whose name pops up everywhere for those of us who are interested in the studio players, along with Ford, Haslip and Novak have created a song driven piece of music that is so fresh and unique,compared to what I expected when players of this stature put something together. Landau seems to be one of those guys who doesn't possess the need to blow you away with incredible chops, although he has them. We all know players like this. Being from St. Louis,Mo. I was fortunate to often see a local guitarist by the name of Peter Mayer of the group PM. He is a blistering player. One of which I wish he'd just make one cd of smokin hot guitar work but appears to be beyond that. Peter like Landau lets his creativity take center stage in his presentation of the music. Nothing against chops now. Use em if you got em. But that appears to me why this indescribable cd is a must for any Robben Ford fan. He too is much more than just a blues man. This is not a balls to the wall fusion cd. It is however a balls to the wall guitar playing super tasty rock cd compiled of a new way of doing business in a niche of music that sorely needs a new frontier. This is an example in which the sum of it's parts exceedis it's individual components. I know there is a quote there somewhere, but I think you know what I'm trying to say. Don't hesitate to buy this cd, especially if you are dying to hear something that is new and exciting. If your a musician you will be overjoyed.

Bought this because I like Robben Ford's style but the Michael Landau penned songs really shine on this disc. Robben Ford is strong here as always and the song "People Like Me" was my favorite. I'd ding the CD for half a star due to the cover of Dylan's "Too Much of Nothing", because no one can top the original Dylan/The Band version. All the Michael Landau tunes are excellent and it is hard to pick a standout. The rhythm section is also top notch. Hard to be disappointed with this CD.

World class musicians came together and made an exception album. It is a bit inconsistent in texture but very enjoyable nonetheless.

Many years ago in some his works with Michael Omartian, Michael Landau played great guitar but today I was very disappointed with his new material. Even Robben Ford seemed to have lost his edge in this CD. I must always sample the CD before buying as your delivery fees cost more than the CD itself.

Ford & Landau, how can you go wrong? Great support from bassist Jimmy Haslip, & drummer Gary Novak, not to mention the great talents of engineering and production legend Ed Cherney (Rolling Stones, Bonnie Raitt, Bob Dylan)

My husband is a Robben Ford fan, so there wasn't enough Robben Ford in this CD to make him happy. I, on the other hand, like Robben Ford and also appreciate good guitar so I liked it.
