Album Review

Although Steve Vai and Joe Satriani get the lion's share of the credit for popularizing "instrumental guitar-driven rock" for metalheads in the late '80s, another gentleman was merrily shredding on the six-string around this same era (and issuing all-instrumental recordings, as well) — Steve Morse. And despite a full-time gig as Ritchie Blackmore's replacement in Deep Purple since 1994, Morse has managed to find the time along the way to reunite with his trusty rhythm section of bassist Dave LaRue and drummer Van Romaine, and issue albums credited solely to the Steve Morse Band. Case in point, the trio's 2009 offering, Out Standing in Their Field. Times and tastes may change in the rock world on a seemingly moment to moment basis, but you always know what's in store with a new Morse Band release — tunes that include unmistakable Zeppelin-esque grooves ("Name Dropping"), mellow detours ("Here and Now and Then"), and of course, chicken-pickin' country ditties ("John Deere Letter"). As far as technique goes, Morse can shred and pluck with the most dexterous of six-string slingers — further proven with the arrival of Out Standing in Their Field.

Customer Reviews

No new ground

Steve Morse never had a bigger fan than I am, but I have to report that Out Standing in Their Field never leaves the ground that Steve has already broken in several previous albums. It's good--great, technically--but nothing new artistically.

Steve is always great to listen

I have been a huge fan of Steve Morse since seeing him in Germany, promoting his High Tension Wires before Kansas and BOC. This is another great listen. . . I especially like Baroque 'n' Dreams . . . and would love to hear him make an recording of just classical pieces like this and "Air on a Six String"

If you are only buying a couple of songs off this album:
Time Junction - i cannot stop listening to this track . . . Jazz, Rock, Full On Shread!
Baroque 'n' dreams - if you like classical
Rising Power

An amazing player

This latest release rocks! Few musicians play like Steve Morse and band on this one. Dave LaRue and Van Romaine round out the trio. I've been a fan since FreeFall with the Dixie Dregs, and still find Morse one of the best.

Steve Morse has enjoyed a healthy following particularly among guitar players, he has scored highly in readers' polls held annually by musicians' magazines. Although initially inspired by the Beatles as a teen, Morse began to expand his listening to include the Yardbirds, Jimi Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin. Although he played a little piano and some clarinet, he became fascinated with guitar after seeing a concert by classical guitarist Juan Mercadal, who later gave the teenaged Morse some lessons.
