NOTES
Not since Hendrix has a guitarist so infused rock and blues with the spirit of adventure.

He's a fireball of energy whose screaming solos and chunky chord work leave little doubt as to where he stands at all times. Over the top is the best way to describe his emotive playing.

This LA blues rock guitar player is a guy who has everyone else just trying to keep up as he pulls off endless incendiary guitar solos.

This is Gordon's fourth album, with a fifth threatened for 2000 release. here's a guy who attracts guitar players who show up to watch and take notes.

(GRADEA*/ROCKTALK'BILL LOCEY/LOS ANGELES TIMES.)

This is simply the hands-down coolest, most outrageous electric-guitar blues I've heard since Jimi's last coherent, live performance.

There is nothing, save regard for our more refined sensibilities, that Jay Gordon doesn't think of here.

Presented, as it is, in a section of the disc dedicated to Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane, it contains all the requisite melodic angularity, all the down-your-throat brashness, all the inventive abandon of the giants in whose names it's offered.

Staggering. Humbling. Wonder-inspiring. White, hot, and blue.

This disc is your best earthly hope for Electric Redemption.
