This is my solo on Benny Golson's classic, Stablemates, from a live gig by the group Four. For me, the most apparent feature is the rhythmic playing I kept getting into during the night we recorded this. That and the sometimes asymmetrical use of space which I'm glad to find has crept into my playing. The guitar here is an Ibanez Artfield AF200.
This is my solo on a Mikko Pettinen original composition entitled Vote For Modes from the radio recording of the group Organization. Using the open tonality as a contrast for a funkier trumpet solo that preceded the guitar solo, this brings to the front one of my earliest influences, Pat Metheny. Nevertheless, this is one of my personal favorites; I like the balance between intensity and control on this one. The instument played is once again the Ibanez AF200.
