On the title track, the song's crafty drum beat carries the song into its varies movements of Chris's beautiful guitar strumming combining with some sly flute programming to create a most cunning creation. For a special treat, co-producer Rick Braun brings along his distinctive sounding flugelhorn on the "Cool Shades" track. Rick graces us with his silky sounds while Chris changes things up a bit and gives us a little wah-wah guitar effects while matching Rick note for note on this most blissful tune. Saxman Kirk Whalum is featured on my favorite selection, Solitaire. Chris starts the song out with a quiet underling melody and eventually opens up the door for Kirk to showcase his smooth tenor sax playing. These two artists commingle around a common melody and play off of each others vibes to create a truly pleasurable aura.
I've got a feeling that we are going to be hearing much more from this great new guitar player for years to come.
