Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Wayne Wesley Johnson - Canciones Del Alma (Songs From the Soul)
|Wayne Wesley Johnson is no slouch when it comes to guitar. As the artwork notes, he's played with some serious heavy weights, including Nokie Edwards. This is a pleasant jazz CD with a nice cover of "Pipeline" on it.|
Track by Track Review
This is a rough textured version of The Chantays' "Pipeline" with none of the original's charm, but with some very nice playing nonetheless. The bluesy-jazz back track and the European-sounding arranging and style take the song into different territory. It may not be surf, but it's a very nice interpretation in the general jazz idiom - better than most.
