How many musical personalities can Joe Satriani inhabit while still sounding like himself? Here you'd swear he traded places with George Benson on this altogether bright and breezy jazz-blues rocker. The rhythm section of Allen Whitman and Jeff Campitelli gets cookin' during the middle break where Satch pulls out some of his snakiest licks yet.Fun stuff!
Joe Satriani says:
“My guitar sound is way different for me here, too, and I love it. My mom turned me on to Eddie Harris, a brilliant saxophone player. He had a lot of songs that cross genres, and he was really great with odd times.
"When I wrote the piece, I knew it was Eddie Harris, and again I knew I was tipping my hat to my mom, for the musical education she instilled in me. There's the bluesy section and the minor key solo section, which is the other side to the story. You get a lot in a song like this.”
