4 stars Larry Coryell - Standing Ovation (1978)

He was a genius as long as guitar playing and as a composer. He was because he is no longer among us. This "Standing Ovation (1978)", deserves just that. Not a pure Progessive album, more likely a Modern Jazz one. But its heartfelt playing and virtuosity is well worth your while. Some kind of Latin flavor taints this work but just enough, not to fall into those restrictions. Inventive, clean and enticing. An easy 4 star album. His style , well works wonders, a must for any follower of modern Jazz guitar based compositions! But not just that he allows piano , violin and zither to enter into these compositions here and there! More less than more, it is STRICTLY a guitar album.
