Just listing the names of other guitar artists on this album is a "Who's Who" of accomplished players. It's boring. Perhaps it was the vision of a recording company that needed another 'Pat Martino Album'? Pat rarely even aknowledges the presence of the other artists. The album cover shows Pat with a set of earphones on; while Michael Hedges is shown behind him playing with no earphones. Maybe Pat was only listening to a click track? It was interesting in showing the performances by the other featured artists - Sadly, Pat just cranks through all the changes in each song - rarely changing tone, dynamics, emotion or whatnot. Lotsa chops, but nothing to say. Maybe a real disappointment for anyone hoping to learn about Pat Martino - but is full of good efforts by the other players.
