Title - 'People Mover'
Artist - Scott Henderson
For those not in the know, guitar virtuoso Scott Henderson has finally finished his brand new album People Mover, the most ambitious project of his career!
The American jazz fusion and blues guitarist best known for his work with the band Tribal Tech grew up in an era where blues-rock was at it's peak.
His formative musical years took place in South Florida where he played the clubs with various bands, playing everything from Led Zeppelin to James Brown.
As he was learning his instrument, Henderson was influenced by Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Ritchie Blackmore, and his favorite blues guitarist Albert King.
Even though Henderson claims to be more of a blues-rock player, it was the influence of jazz that led him to the style of playing and composing that he is now famous for.
This highly anticipated instrumental album for guitar trio was just released this past July 1st, 2019 and features 10 new and original recordings from the master guitarist.
2. 'Primary Location'
3. 'All Aboard'
4. 'People Mover'
6. 'Blood Moon'
7. 'Blue Heron Boulevard'
9. 'Happy Fun-Sing'
Having listened to the wondrous People Mover twice through now I can honestly say that it demonstrates Scott's striking ability to combine elements of jazz, rock, funk and blues in an even more authentic, seamless and musical way than any of his previous work.
Tracks such as the stunning eight minute album opener 'Transatlantic,' the funky hipsway of 'Primary Location,' the AOR appeal of the title track itself and both the melancholy leaning of 'Blood Moon' and the perky bass prog of 'Syringe,' all serve as proof that after 35 years as a bandleader, Scott is a musician whose playing and composing continues to grow.
