Arthur Fowler - Here I Am Again

.
Arthur Fowler grew up digging Jimi Hendrix (as do most self-respecting electric guitarists), and has since matured into one fine jazz player. The first two tracks on Here I Am Again were recorded with Chicago blues musicians, while the other three were tracked with Tokyo players. Yep, he's eclectic, too.

Fowler is also a jazz singer, and sings smoothly, a little like Mose Allison on the slowly grooving "Tick Tock." The project's best track is titled "Los Aņos," which begins with a keyboard groove the beautifully hearkens back to vintage Santana, with just a touch of Doors thrown in for good measure, and swings a little like a Dave Brubeck composition.

The release closes with "Disappearing," which separates itself from what comes before it with an acoustic guitar rhythm, with sparse guitar notes atop it. This music can best be described as jazz-influenced, as opposed to strictly jazz. It can also be described as extremely good. Fowler is a guitarist with a wide range of tools.
