Dave Easley plays the pedal steel guitar, but this is not a “pedal steel guitar” album; it’s an album by a gifted musician at the peak of his career. His phrasing, sense of touch, harmonic sensibilities and sheer virtuosity put him in a league with the greatest musicians of our time. There is plenty to love in this album – the lyricism displayed on “My Foolish Heart,” and “Ruby My Dear”, a version of “In a Silent Way” that Brian Wilson would love and an interpretation of “In My Room” that I think Miles Davis would have approved of and of course John Coltrane’s formidable composition “Giant Steps”. The deft and tasteful ensemble-like accompaniment of drummer Chad Taylor and double bassist Dave Tranchina; Cathlene Pineda’s rhapsodic piano solo on “Jesus Maria” and more.
