Delivering quintessential performances throughout 'The Lift', Larry Coryell returns to Wide Hive with a throwback rock trio which charted CMJ Jazz top 10 for over three months. Transitioning between rock, blues, and soul infused jazz, Larry is on his game with skills so serious it will make you question how they could be the one-take performances they are. Guitarists take note.
A refreshing soul-jazz classic that basks in West Coast sunshine. --BBC Music magazine
A stellar collective that spans the breadth of the Wide Hive Records roster come together as the Wide Hive Players group, a project with roots in some live sessions that grew into a wonderful little modern jazz set. --Dusty Groove
As one of the pioneers of jazz-rock perhaps the pioneer in the ears of some Larry Coryell deserves a special place in the history books ... [bringing] a nearly alien sensibility to jazz electric guitar. --All Music Guide

So, this listener needs to ask, what on Earth is this? It sounds as though he's assembled a rehearsed, but relatively untalented High School jazz band as his backup. His own guitar parts, normally second to none, are few and simple; more like the noodling of a fourteen year old beginner. I find the compositions to be spot-off, rambling and non-directional.
In short, this is very possibly the worst Coryell album ever, and the worst album I've heard by anyone in five years. This may be new for Larry, but there's nothing here that hasn't been done, and better, a hundred times over.
Thankfully this is only my opinion. I'm sure legions of others will like it, and I really hope they do, but mine is headed for the trashbin, and it will also represent the last 'sound unheard' pre-order I ever, ever commit to on Amazon, or any site.
