Definitely not a step in the right direction
on March 21, 2014
I am very surprised by this album, after having enjoyed all of Jackie Greene's previous works and having seen him since he was a virtual unknown outside of Sacramento and the Bay Area. I do wonder what his state of mind was when putting this album together, as it lacks the creativity and freshness which he brought to his earlier music. I wonder if he just wanted to put out a record and didn't have much going in the area of creative juices. And who produced this? It is way too forgetable to be rated more than 3-stars and I gave it 2-stars because had it not been Jackie Greene's music, I never would have purchased it without having heard it first. I shouldn't have to "work" in order to like an album and this one will take work.
