Scott McGill maybe is not among the most well known
jazz fusion/rock guitarists in last 3 decades,
but his style and manner of composing,
his guitar tone and ideas are definetly among
the most intresting ones you'll ever hear.
Even famouses drummer Bill BRUFORD and
the excellent keybordist Jens JOHANSSON
were pretty much very impressed by McGill
guitar technique specially on his debut
"The hand farm" from 1997 issued
at Mellow records.
His career lasting for almost 3 decades,
being member in different bands like
Finneus Gauge or collaborating with many musicians.
His first solo album "The hand farm" showing
that he must be far more known then is seen today.
Helped by a bunch of talented musicians,
Scott offer an instrumental album crossing
bounderies from jazz fusion to jazz rock with
progressive rock leanings.
His playing is excellent , quite unique and
inventive just listen to the first 3 pieces,
"The Great Unwashed", "The Secret Linen Service"
The rest of the pieces are also great.
This is not usual stuff, only killer tunes for serious listeners.
