Sandro Albert: Vertical

Read "Vertical" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose


Ever since the path-breaking, horn-like excursions of guitarist Charlie Christian in Benny Goodman's band, the language and literature of the guitar have forever been changed. Today's exponents, from Pat Metheny to Fred Frith, have stretched its boundaries, albeit from dramatically different perspectives of the musical spectrum.

Sandro Albert's biggest weakness may be his near-perfect ability to imitate one of the world's best jazz guitarists.

His compositions reflect a strong melodic and harmonic ear, a first-rate roster of players mixes well, and there's plenty of intellect at work beneath an easygoing surface.
