This is a well-crafted album from longtime studio ace Louie Shelton. As the title suggests, the emphasis is on Shelton's guitar work, and this man can play. Though obviously tailored for the contemporary/smooth jazz market, Guitar has much more oomph than is typical in this genre. The arrangements are tight and consistently hold the listener's attention with a variety of textures and rhythms, and the guitarist displays dazzling technique across a broad stylistic range. He plays octaves ? la Wes Montgomery and single-note runs that put most hot-shot rock guitarists to shame. This is a release with many treats in store for the connoisseur of instrumental pop/rock, groove jazz, contemporary jazz, and just plain great guitar playing. ~ Jim Newsom
