For many in the music industry this is the best release of Lee Ritenour. On this album he is at his best. I bought it just after I heard "Master Keynoardist" Bob James of Fourplay sayng: "This is one of the 10 albums that I would bring with me If I had to live on a deserted island."
After listening the CD I was in awe. The cleanest jazz guitar I've ever heard.
Pure perfection. The whole CD is a tribute to Wes Montgomery and to his style of play.
"A Little Bumpin'" is magnificent with the upbeat rhythm and beautiful textures.
"West Coast Blues" is another track where Lee shows his amazing phrasing capabilities.
One of the best albums I've ever owned.
