Project 7: Lost For Words

If you like your rock guitar instrumental releases intelligently composed, executed, and full of designer testosterone — this is the ticket. Dan Begelman is axe, John DeCesare is bass, and Tony Gallino does drums. Begelman will appeal to Ronnie Montrose, Jeff Beck, Pete Carr, Derringer, Allman Brothers, and even Captain Beyond fans. There is enough jazz fusion leanings spiced here and there to attract those listeners as well but foremost — this is a superb melodic guitar excursion start to finish. Best songs to drive to and sling gravel are: “Six Fingers”, “Points East”, “Against the Ropes”, and “Cliffhanger” — all killer tracks. I need not mention Satriani, E. Johnson, or Vai — but do catch my drift — Begelman’s visionary writing and soul-fired riffing is frequently more interesting than even such “gods” of go-speed-racer, guitardom. Chops need not be faster than the sound of pleasure for the music to breathe satisfying fire and passion. Be sure to sample Project 7's 1997 BirthDeathInfinity release which only shows even better ammo in Begelman’s arsenal. Still no vocals. So what.
