Collaborators/Experts Reviews

Review by Dick Heath
4 stars 8 weeks into the year, and here's the first album that could be my jazz fusion album of the year, come December.2012 The combination of a cornucopia of major jazz guitarists, playing some pretty damned good tunes, in some powerful arrangements, and all the guys playing at the top of their individual forms, means this is must for fusion fans. It also (perhaps) provides an excellent sampler to the curious to find where jazz fusion is right now. Dirty & Beautiful Volume 1 was a joy but tanatalised as to where some of these musical line-ups could go; here, Volume 2 provides some indications of objectives. Husband's long experience in the musical industry, means several collaborations are with friends but there are also new collaborations (current members of the Abstract Logix stable), so I get the sense that Husband is in personal 7th heaven. But the variety of fusion styles offered here, does make me curious to hear Husband playing with others, such a Scott Volume 3 please.

While trying to avoid any negative comments for album that has thrilled me, I predict there will be those critics who will complain that with Gary playing with different line-up on virtually every track found across Volumes 1 and 2, which one actually represents the modern day Gary Husband? One response I offer: Gary is touring to Jim Mullen about now, and bet you won't hear anything similar to the playing on Volume2. Gary Husband as a drummer and keyboardist is most versatile, so expect the unexpected.
