James Grant "Mythology"(independent) - James Grant's latest CD, "Mythology," is filled with technically perfect guitar work in the spirit of the '80s and '90s efforts by Joe Satriani. However, to draw simple comparisons with that pioneering player's approach would not paint a complete picture. Grant has the soul of a bluesman, notably on "Rainmaker" and "Oasis," on which the guitarist's work recalls Gary Moore's fretwork on "Still Got the Blues." Irvine-based Grant plays with incredible skill, wrapping expressive solos in textured arrangements that blend elements of progressive rock, modern jazz and electric blues. You might like if you enjoy: Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Gary Mooreā€¯
