  1. Stain by Living Colour ·
    Not there best and unfortunately their last. I heard the potential and actually learned to like this album but boy was it hollow. Sounded rushed and uninspired. Sad ending to what could have been a great band.

  2. Listen by Doug Raney ·
    Son of Jazz great Jimmy Raney, Doug shows on this album that he can produce some swinging lines a la his father. If you want to check out a Parker tune that's rarely been recorded check out "Bird Feathers". Pretty cool album.

  3. Plays Monk by Group Fifteen ·
    I grabbed this CD because of my familiarity with Peter Bernstein's work with Jazz organist Jack McDuff. The name of the group is pretty cool cause if you add up all the strings on their instruments you get 15. Anyway the music is great Monk is...(more)

  5. Fair Warning by Van Halen ·
    Other than VHI, which is a classic, this is my favorite VH recording. I aagree, very very HEAVY. "Alright you sinners, SWING!" lol.

  6. Once in a Livetime by Dream Theater ·
    Dream Theater are rockers that know what they're doing! Point blank. This live recording shows that. Must get!

  10. Virtues of the Well by Robert Tye ·
    This recording was recommeded by the editor of Just Jazz Guitar at a recent live chat session and I immediately ran out and purchased it. To be young this jazz guitarist has many influences that shows in his compositions but everything still SW...(more)

  11. Step It by Bill Connors ·
    This is a guitarist that was recommended to me and I still don't get it. I love Dave Weckl's playing but the guitar playing seems to be run ons. Not interesting at all. His sound is like Allan Holdsworth.

  12. Double Up by Bill Connors ·
    This is another one and I still don't get it. Maybe its the effects on his guitar or maybe its those endless runs. I don't know.

  13. Communications by Jazz Composer's Orchestra ·
    If you're looking for something totally different and out of this world then this recording will take you on a tour of "Free Jazz." To get a real taste of what this form sounds like then I recommend this recording.

  14. Song X by Pat Metheny ·
    I'm not a Methany fan but I do love free jazz. Methany seems to fit right in with the other free jazz monsters on this recording. Looking for something different? I suggest this.

  15. Flexable by Steve Vai ·
    Pretty cool tunes on this recording along with some that makes you scratch your head. Steve's playing is phenomenal and quite creative. He actually makes guitar playing sound fun. I really enjoy this CD.

  16. Passion and Warfare by Steve Vai ·
    I really like this recording and highly suggest it to anyone of any style of guitar playing they're into. Steve's playing has that way of touching all styles. It should be a crime to be that creative and such an excellent guitar player. Along ...(more)

  17. Romance with the Unseen by Don Byron ·
    After seeing DB live I really got into his playing and really started appreciating Bill Frisell as a guitarist. I only knew him by name but I was impressed with BF. This recording solidifies the two as a duo. Great for those who need a compin...(more)

  18. Iron Maiden by Iron Maiden ·
    An intelligent Heavy Metal Band!?? Beleive it or not. I'm a BIG TIME Maiden fan, at least up until seventh sun. This recording is their first and it shows a lot as far songwriting, interesting subjects, great guitar harmony. For those who wa...(more)

  19. Powerslave by Iron Maiden ·
    My Second favorite Maiden Album behind "Numbers". The interesting thing about this group is that they have to hold the record for lineup changes! 4 Vocals, Dave Murray and Steve Harris are the only staples. 3/4 drummers, and the second guitar s...(more)

  20. A Change of Seasons by Dream Theater ·
    What turned my head of this recording was the live tracks. This group has to be the ultimate in versatility. They do an excellent cover of Deep Purple's "Perfect Strangers". They even do an Elton John cover, a Journey cover, then a Led Zeppli...(more)
