(Sylvan House Music)


Backed up by a solid support band—including Tim Landers (bass), Tal Bergman (drums), Ron Powell (percussion) and Les Portelli (piano)—L.A. based guitarist Brian Hughes does what he does best in a live setting on his 2007 in concert CD. One of the top guitarists on the contemporary instrumental jazz fusion scene, Hughes has recorded a number of solo albums over the last ten years—as well as supplying guitar and production work for renowned singer Loreena McKennitt and backing The Chieftains on several tours. At the heart of the Hughes sound is his love of modern jazz guitar icons such as Wes Montgomery, George Benson and Pat Metheny. Commenting on taking his group on the road, Hughes adds, ‘We try to get out on the road as much as possible but frankly it is not as much as I would like. Playing live is my favorite thing and I wish we could tour more often.’ Putting his own spin on the sound of the masters and contemporary guitar favorites alike, Brian Hughes comes up a winner with the all instrumental, electric guitar fusion sound of Live.
