Album Notes
Hugh started his career in music on the drums at the age of six, playing his first concert at eight. Originally from the Boston area, he grew up in a musical family with two older guitar-playing brothers. Switching to guitar at eleven. Hugh grew up with the sounds of rock and roll through the 60's and early 70's. By the ripe old age of 14 he was already playing the Boston Club scene, cranking out Hendrix, Santana and Allman Brothers tunes.

In the late70's, Hugh was turned on to Mahavishnu and Chic Corea and his style of music took a dramatic turn. In 1978 he moved to Phoenix and began touring with several club bands around the US, finally moving back to the Boston area in 1981.

In 1982 Hugh started his first rendition of the MR Wizard band and was featured in Guitar Player Magazine. Soon after he started to get requests for lessons from students at the Berklee College of Music. Having no formal training, it was a challenge to teach his method of playing. In 1984 his new MR Wizard band got some local notoriety by being warm up act for Allan Holdsworth, Til' Tuesday and several other well-known acts.

1986 brought a career move out to Los Angeles where he landed his gig with Graham Nash. Hugh did a U.S. tour as guitarist and vocalist for Graham and he loved the challenge of having to sing David Crosbys cool vocal melodies.

During to 90's Hugh spent most of his time raising his 3 boys on his own and he worked as a manufacturing engineer then going to college and becoming a software engineer too. Hugh did record a vocal record called "Follow My Heart" but he says it will not be released.

In 2001 Hugh got back into the music he really loves "Fusion", recording his first fusion CD "The Jungle" with John Bellino on drums, Brian Wright on bass and quest appearances by Peter Ferguson ( Bass/Key/Guitar), Karl Babcock on Keys and Aaron Ferguson (samples).

Hugh started his next project "300 Miles" with his former bass player Rich Thomas and Joel Taylor on drums in 2002. With all of the conflicting schedules the CD will should be done early in 2004.

The Trio has performed in LA and Orange County and has opened for such acts as Larry Carlton, Al Dimeola and Hiroshima.

Hugh is also working on some new music with his brother Peter in San Fransisco.

Lost Sunset made this CD a winner!
I just recently became acquainted with fusion, so I will reserve my thoughts until later. However, Lost Sunset makes the entire CD worthwhile.


Great cd. guitar soloing reminded me at times of allan holdsworth
Interesting cd. A good mixture of tunes. A cd i would listen to on a regular basis.The guitar soloing at times reminded me of allan holdsworth. I am looking forward to the next record.

very wonderful
this cd is very fantastique
Great guitarist
an very great song


A rock-fusion classic !
I have not heard this genius guitar works in the near past as on The Jungle. I think so it is unworthy that this over the top music is available only CD-R format. I reminded to Benny Jansson's playing. Congratulations !!!! I hope to be continued... and at once.

This man kills it on so many levels.

The CD is raw Jazz Fusion at its best.
I loved the CD. I'm a huge fan of Jazz Fusion and it gets no better than the Jungle. I got it in the mail on Thursday
and listened to it all day at work on Friday. Thanks CD Baby
for supporting the Jazz Fusion World!!!!!!!

Joe Barbarotta

Though influenced by the fusion masters, has his own voice
Borrowing from various genres is what fusion is all about. Here, Ferguson mines the fertile soil of shred metal, prog, seventies fusion, and straight ahead jazz and comes up with an entertaining cd. Though there is plenty of guitar chops to go around, it's the quality of the compositions that makes this one a winner.

Mr J Westcott
this is one of them cd you want to listen to again and again. a must
