Jazz, with a taste of Texas. This offering from Austin-based guitarist (and former Marilyn Scott sideman) Ray MacCarty delivers the goods: versatility, solid chops, and an absolute fearlessness when approaching both styles and material. Tracks as diverse as Freddy King's "Heads Up" and Grover's classic "Mister Magic" - Ray dives right in. He has the ability to get to the heart of a song without making it seem overblown. This trip will take you beyond the ordinary, beyond the expected. It's well worth the journey.
