Album Notes
This artist is at the cutting edge of the progressive jazz idiom on his instrument, the pedal steel guitar. Many people associate the steel guitar with a country and western sound, which is understandable considering that the vast majority of those who play the instrument strive to get a country type of sound. This artist is truly playing outside of the box. This artist has studied the jazz language in great detail, and is also a very good composer. The intricate melodies and chord changes exemplify a sound that is sophisticated, and is a refreshing change from the norm. This is something you must hear, and see, to fully appreciate.
