In the Breezeway
You will not believe the sounds coming out of In The Breezeway. Normally armed with just an acoustic guitar and an effects box, Jeff Aug plays acoustic and electric on this CD -- both solo performances and songs with other musicians -- he sounds equally fantastic playing alone or rocking with other instruments. If you are into David Gilmour, John McLaughlin, Jimmy Page, and Rush, check out 'Introduction to Shazam' with it's cool Doors 'The End'-type sound, and the next song, 'Shazam' sounding like Ian Anderson on steroids! Aug finger picks incredibly fast and keeps his tone very clean. The song, 'Got a Mutt Named Spike' features Steve Levine on harmonica playing along with Jeff's bluesy riffs. '7-11 Slurpee' not only has a cool name for a song, it has a very Asian sound. The last song, 'Paces' is in the ozone with volume-swelled electric guitar pulsing like an old Pink Floyd album mixed with some Jimi Hendrix spaciness. If you think the guitar is smashed and buried, check out In The Breezeway.
