Earshot Jazz

 

Scott Lindenmuth Group

ANOTHER SIDE, ANOTHER TIME

Dark Stream Records

 

 

If all your guitar heroes of the '70s have aged gracefully into obscurity, then it's time you heard Seattle guitarist Scott Lindenmuth. Leaning towards the rock side of the jazz-rock fusion coin, Another Side, Another Time follows in the tradition of Jeff Beck's Blow By Blow and Hendrix' Band Of Gypsys. Lindenmuth's technique on acoustic and electric guitars is quite incredible. His style is distinguished by a sure flow of ideas, a terse, urgent rhythmic see-saw between him and the band members and a tone quality that's not easy to analogize. Compositionally, the group avoids the pitfalls that mire many fusion groups in the quicksand of complacency. The tunes allow room for everyone to contribute, are not slick or atmospheric, and end up being just the right vehicle for Lindenmuth's explorations. You should hear this record. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by Scott Lindenmuth's group.
