4 stars Unusual acoustic live show by great bass guitarist Jonas Hellborg. With his regular collaborator electric guitarist Shawn Lane (he plays acoustic only guitar there as well) and drummer/percussionist Jeff Sipe (aka Apt. Q-258), Jonas plays almost meditative raga- influenced acoustic compositions there.

Two first compositions under common name The House Stands Still are 30 + minutes long.They both are bass supported acoustic guitar solos with few percussion touches. Very Shakti-like feeling.

Two second (and last) compositions have common name as well (Traces End Here, 23+ minutes).There guitr dronning support soloing acoustic bass."Conclusion", the very last piece, is faster and more energetic interplay between bass and guitar, with very Indian atmosphere.

Excellent acoustic fusion work showing the unusual side of renowned electric bass artist.
