Five BRILLIANT Stars! Enjoyable, bright & hard-swinging! 6 months after purchase, I frequently listen to this CD by guitar wizard Stanley Jordan & his all-star cast, & it keeps getting better. Jordan is one of the giants of jazz guitar, having the genius to create his groundbreaking "SJ Technique": a two-handed "touch technique" that allows him to play a guitar fingerboard somewhat like a piano keyboard: plucking strings on chords, tapping strings on solos, or a mixture of both, often creating the illusion of multiple guitars (but a standard pick does surface on "Bathed in Light"). And Stanley is an excellent jazz and classical pianist who sometimes plays guitar and piano simultaneously. The 'best of the best' begins with Jordan's own "Capital J" which is a blazing performance with engaging solos from Kenny Garrett on soprano sax, Nicholas Payton on trumpet and Kenwood Dennard on drums. "Walkin' The Dog" is funky, tasty solo stuff from Jordan and guitar ace Charlie Hunter. Coltrane's "Giant Steps" is hard-swinging fare with sweet guitar solos from Jordan and Mike Stern trading melody, bass, and chord duties over Dennard's solid brushwork. Jordan demonstrates his simultaneous guitar and piano technique, transforming Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl" into a bluesy romp with Hunter's guitar back on stage. "Samba Delight" has Ronnie Laws on soprano and the hot & sweet violin of Regina Carter, who is outstanding both here and with Stanley on piano on the Bartok variation "Romantic Intermezzo". Charlie Christian's "Seven Come Eleven" is a smoking collage of unison notes and solos from SJ, Bucky Pizzarelli, and Russell Malone that got an immediate replay, as did the mellow "Bathed in Light", featuring Payton's lovely brass tone.Read more ›

From the first note, this musical gem transported me to some kind of hip, old-school juke-joint. The first 8 tracks stand alone, and would make a great little party CD. Then the scene changes to a classical music hall, then to a relaxed interlude on a favorite old couch.... Then, when we think we've figured him out, Stanley takes us to the Twilight Zone on the final cut. Those of us who are longtime listeners know -- it's just Stanley being Stanley. His creative impulse cannot be bound to a single music genre, so he continually re-invents himself, and re-invents the listening experience.

I had often wondered how Stanley's unique touch-style picking would sound coupled with a smooth sax, or a little Count Bassie orchestration, and this CD finally lets it all hang out. Don't miss this trip. Stanley's "A" game is once again front and center.

I personally enjoy his last album, 'State of Nature', far more than this. I think the main difference is that on 'State of Nature', it is all Stanley arranging the songs, while on this album, it is other artists arranging the songs and Stanley tapping over them. This isn't a bad album-- it's decent, just not as powerful as I'd like. There were songs on the last album such as "Song for my Father", "Insensetaz", "Shadow Dance", "Steppin' Out" that I just don't feel are matched on this album. Of course, YMMV.

I have listened only the first three tracks, but I'm sure this will be the line for the whole album, only with these three it worths every coin you pay for it.
