McCannic Music artist: Pete McCann - Without Question - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Without Question, from Pete McCann and I like it's aggressive attack. Opening with title track, Without Question, Steve Wilson on alto sax and Pete McCann on electric guitar really rip it loose. With Henry Hey on piano, Matt Pavolka on bass and Mark Ferber on drums, this track is smokin. I really like the excitement created by Wilson and Ferber on Trifecta. McCann's guitar solo is unhinged, with intense energy. Very nice! Blues For O.M. is a "heady" exploration on Oliver Messianen who is known for the famous Modes of limited transposition. I think that this track works really well giving McCann a wide open floor to lay down a blistering guitar solo over a conventional walking bass line by Pavolka. Very cool. Wrapping the release is Erase The Hate, a soulful ballad featuring Wilson on alto leading the melody which has just a taste of Eastern influence. McCann shifts to more rock styling with Gary More ballad like soloing and Wilson to Soprano as a continued melody, with Hey holding the melody on piano. Solid closer for an intelligent release.
