Jaye Foucher is back with more killer guitar. She beats her previous release, Infectious Licks hands down. Foucher is as smokin’ on the frets as ever. There is a harder, fuller sound at times with more crunch and low end but all the furious fretwork layered in here and there is superb. Song compositions are well-thought and do not fall prey to the curse of pentatonic-scaled, auto-rock, riffland. This is guitar rock with brainy fingers versus auto-shred and its insipid boredoms. Foucher is a comfortable listen, a guitarist’s guitarist and obviously dedicated to her art and an avid promoter of guitar-driven rock in its more progressively headier modes.
Check her out on "Zombieland", Metallica move outta da way, Jaye is here. Another great release from Jaye! A fun riff-ride. Avoid the doldrums of shred and check out Foucher. Need I mention she is one gem among the hard rockin’ axe-boys? Well, she is and her riffs are solid proof. Oh yeah, no vocals this time . . .
Track Listing: : 1. What Comes Around; 2. Angst; 3. Zombieland; 4. Surreality; 5. Beginnings; 6. Up Up & Insane; 7. My Own Abyss; 8. Transition; 9. The Untamed; 10. Hippo Groove
I love jazz because I enjoy the freedom.
I was first exposed to jazz when I was 17.
I met Cedar Walton at a concert in San Paulo.
The best show I ever attended was Helio Jambao trio.
The first jazz record I bought was Witchcraft by George Benson.
My advice to new listeners is listen to the old school first.
