O’s Notes: Guitarist Nils Weinhold plays jazz fusion leading the charge with aggressive, well-articulated melodies start to finish. He wrote all of the eight compositions and produced the entire effort. Support comes from a strong band that includes Adam Larson who shares the lead lines with Weinhold sometimes shadowing him through lightning fast passages. We liked their energy on “The Almost Too Loud One”, perhaps the best of the lot. Bassist Luques Curtis adds a punchy bass line to “Dragonfly” rounding out a balanced set.
