"Isn't It Romantic?" Ron Jackson has fun with this familiar chestnut. The endearing melody is respected while adding a unique solo treatment that makes this tune new and refreshing. Nice exchanges with the drummer who lays low in his responses but needs to smooth out in the ensemble.
"Long Ago And Far Away" Again Jackson paints with his own brush going up in tempo with some rapid fire picking. An interesting bass solo adds another dimension. The 4 bar exchanges with the drummer showcase Ron Jackson's take charge mode.
This is a super album for the guitar aficionado as well as the established player.
