CD REVIEW: John Gilliat - Freedom
By Ben Ohmart - 05/21/2007 - 10:34 AM EDT

Artist: John Gilliat
Genre: World
CD Review:
A lively instrumental album coming right up to the brim on your coffee cup, filled with stay awake medicine of the brightest kind. Yes, even the lower key tracks like 'Rain' come down in a Positive way. As a matter of fact, the shower picks up after the 5 minute mark, and sprinkles you like you're a little girl in your first thunderstorm. There's something so great and refreshing here.

I'm pleased to have this cd, which shall remain in my personal collection. There's a good combo backing John up as well. Often they have a pronounced Latin limp that is spry and fanciful. 'Nachos' begins with acoustic guitars in each ear and transports you emotionally to that part of the world that's south of Epcot. A wonderful experience, full of bongos, claves, jam blocks, and Flamenco guitars that stop for no lights.

If you have a hankering for great instrumental guitar stuff, please for John Gilliat. You WON'T be disappointed, and you can only help this guy, and your psyche, out.
