“Chris' guitar playing is exceptional with touches of Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin and Pat Metheny. Chris is not only a great guitarist, but also an accomplished producer, arranger and composer... The music on this recording takes you on a journey through funk, fusion, melodic layback grooves to Mahavishnu feels. JUST BRILLIANT!”
