Project G5 | A Tribute To Wes Montgomery
Ten years after this stunning CD came out (though actually recorded in 1992) no-one has posted a review. Well, it is still available and if you like jazz guitar you won't be disappointed with the sixty-three minutes of this G-5 Project.
Guitarist Royce Campbell produced the set and he also plays with the others. The eleven tracks either feature individuals or duets with Naptown Blues letting everyone jam for a wonderful nine minutes.
Apart from some great guitar playing one reason I like this CD is the drum work of John Von Ohlen, he provides a solid rhythm backing and if you listen carefully on Naptown Blues you'll hear him vary the cymbal work as each guitarist solos.
BTW, the same company has issued a further two CDs in this series, Project G-7 (Volumes one and two) and I found them rather uninspiring in relation to this G-5 CD. Review by Robin
