G-Fire by G-Fire

"G-Fire," or "Guitars on Fire," is a 12-track CD featuring four stellar, accomplished guitarists -- Morris O'Connor, Brazilian Jazz artist Miguel Mega, Kevin Cho'kan and Vernon Neilly. After traveling more than 20 years with well-known artists such as Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Diana Ross, Jeffrey Osborne, Chaka Khan and Teena Marie, these guitarists decided to merge and release their own material.

"G-Fire" contains a combination of smooth jazz, jazz fusion, blues, salsa and samba tracks. Strong melodies and smooth guitar style makes this CD a must-hear for an aspiring guitarist or simply any smooth jazz lover.

For a little funk, try Kevin Cho'kan's "Do Da." The track features an organ and piano solo by Roger Smith. "Wooded," a jazz fusion track by Miguel, presents the best percussion I've ever heard. O'Connor does a great interpretation of Freddie Hubbard's "Little Sunflower."

"G-Fire" is one of the most diverse jazz guitarist albums I've ever heard, and it would be nice to see more guitarists of this class do more compilations together. May add Wayman Tisdale or Norman Brown to the mix?
