Guitar Masters 1 / Various
(Jewel Case Packaging)
Guitar Masters, VOL 1 aggressively celebrates the art of guitar and bass by serving up 18 tracks of unfettered - and often astonishing - brilliance. And there are plenty of surprises. Metal madman Zakk Wylde unleashing his ferocious chops on a Stevie Wonder tune. The spectacularly innovative Jeff Beck laying sexy licks onto a Toots & the Maytals reggae groove. Jazz bass legend Stanley Clarke trading propulsive funk lines with shred master Joe Satriani. Uber-technical prog icon Alan Holdsworth sharing space on a CD with former Led Zeppelin multi-instrumentalist John Paul Jones, funky jazzer John Scofield, Tele Terror Will Ray and rock wizard Steve Morse? You also get treated to tracks by Marcus Winch, Brian Tarquin, James Ryan, Jason Carter and more.
