(Randy Bernsen)

Guitarist Randy Bernsen is electric on his latest release. On Grace Notes, Bernsen joins forces with bassist Jimmy Haslip for a high-energy set of mostly originals by the lead player. The sound is a mix of blues, rock fusion, and funk,  stretched over a contemporary jazz framework. The musicianship of all of the rest of outstanding players contributes greatly to the quality of this production. Joining in our are pianists Russell Ferrante and Colin James, drummers Peter Erskine, Gary Novak and Julius Pastorius, saxophonist Steve Tavaglione and percussionist Luis Conte, among others. Bernsen and company really deliver some outstanding performances that are worth checking out.
