Guitarist Carl Filipiak developed both as a guitarist and a composer throughout the 1990s without achieving much fame. He jams "Blues In O" like a credible straightahead jazz musician, hints at Pat Metheny in some other spots and has a few fiery rockish fusion solos too. The music is certainly helped by the inventive playing of drummer Dennis Chambers and keyboardist Paul Soroka while three different tenor-saxophonists make one appearance apiece. Overall, this is stimulating music easily recommended to open-minded fusion collectors.
This is one of my Favorite CD's of Carl's. If you are a Jazz fan - you will love it. It you are a guitarist or like guitar music - it's a MUST. He is a top flight musician. Don't forget - he has many others.
