Read "Psalm" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

A fusion guitar album with a difference: Connecticut guitarist/composer Dan Arcamone wrote pieces based on some of saxophonist John Coltrane's most complex chord progressions ("Giant Steps," “Countdown," “Satellite," and “26-2")—all dating from his Atlantic Records period, and sometimes called “Coltrane changes."
