Guitarist Bruce Forman has assembled an outstanding production with his latest effort. The Book of Forman: Formanism Volume II is a fantastic showcase of Forman’s talents as a musician, composer, bandleader and arranger. Featuring Marvin “Smitty” Smith on drums and Alex Frank on bass, the production glides through a set of music primarily composed by Forman, while including several covers which he also arranged. The chemistry between the players is wonderful and makes for truly swinging moments, along Forman’s tone and acumen on the six strings at the center of it all. This truly one that should not be missed.
