Philip Catherine: Summer Night

Blistering...

Philip Catherine has a guitar tone like that of the shine of hot mercury pouring from a stainless steel cylinder. His latest recording, Summer Night is replete with such a tone on both fusionesque pieces and more mainstream standard fare. Catherine deftly employs electric effects, always tastefully, to make his playing more fluid. "Tiger Groove" so totally rocks with Bert Jorvis’ brass that it grabs the listeners’ attention and sucks him or her into this wonderful melee of rhythm and harmony. Catherine takes on the standard ("Time After Time," "’Round About Midnight"), the fusion ("Tiger Groove") and the Space Guitar ("Birth of Janet") with equal enthusiasm. This is simply as fine a jazz guitar recording as one could hope for, as there is something for all listeners.
