Hubble: Hubble Drums
At a well-lit intersection where Steve Reich and experimental guitar wizard Andre LaFosse meet up for a night on the town you’ll find Ben Greenberg impressing both with his uncommonly good compositions. The opening “Nude Ghost” came to life as part of a finger-tapping figure Greenberg worked up in his early solo guitar days. On that track, he’s assisted by Joe Williams, Jon Leland and Matt Papich, partners equal to Greenberg’s track of excellence. “Glass Napkin” demonstrates the artist’s ability to shred without shredding and he proves he can create one of the wickedest tones this side of Allan Holdsworth. The closing “Hubble’s Hubble” may be the most unexpected-sounding of the three here and the culmination of the stunning compositional and performance sense Greenberg demonstrates elsewhere.
