Frank Vignola: Deja Vu
Chick Corea's "Spain" sits atop Joe Ascione's mechanical programmed drum pattern and a throbbing electric bass counterpoint, as Vignola's guitar provides the melody. John Lennon's "Imagine" is all melody with a backbeat; Vignola treats them right. His improvisation isn't fiery or flashy; rather, the guitarist prefers to maintain an adult contemporary, soft rock approach. The restrained emotion and attention to lyrical melodies makes D'j' vu pleasurable.
