Artist: Solar Wind
Title: Grand Tour Alignment
Label: Chartmaker Jazz

Solar Wind is Sean Mason (bass) and Eric Robson (acoustic and electrical guitars). They continue their collaborative efforts with an outstanding CD entitled "Grand Tour Alignment." A stunning and remarkable gathering of talent from the jazz world is assembled to assist the duo. Eric Marinenthal (alto sax), Frank Gambale (electric guitar), and Gary Novak (drums) all sit in to help make this a peerless recording session. All of the men are former members of Chick Corea's Elektric Band. I saw the Corea band perform live in 1985 at the Concord Jazz Festival. When looking back at the experience I recall Gambale's guitar playing as being stellar.

There is no coincidence that some of the top players in jazz are making guest appearances on this album. Mason and Robson obviously have the respect and admiration of their peers. Sean Mason is in total command of his instrument. His predominant bass lines are featured throughout this release. The best example of Mason's popping and thumping bass is the tune "Pacific Strut", a real hell raiser of funk filled jazz. Partner Robson is no slouch on guitar, he sparkles and shines as well. He is steadfast and true to his purpose and remains a model of consistency. A perfect compliment to his partner.

This music has all the right qualities in place to really dazzle you. The artist's maintain an aura of excitement with tasteful purposefulness that only jazz music seems able to command from it's creators. This is Contemporary Jazz-New Age-Fusion wrapped air tight to bend to the idiosyncrasies and desires of the individuals that make it all happen. A true omnibus of aural pleasures that will surely put you in a state of awe. The planets really must of been aligned the day this all came together.
