Dave Isaacs: Flying (2004)
Isaacs lays it all out rather nicely as he periodically implements a bottle-neck for some hot n' nasty, wailing blues licks. The guitarist tones the session down a few notches during his nimble-picking acoustic work on "Waterfall. But he also slams the pedal to the metal in spots.
Overall, he conjures up a tasteful series of events, often dappled with attractive harmonic patterns. And his ability to ad-lib the melodic content of these pieces, framed upon structured grooves, transmits his conviction and astute musicality.
