On his fourth solo album, blues guitar virtuoso Philip Sayce unveils his most driving work yet, which features the inspired playing of bassist JoelGottschalk. As Sayce blends indie-rock and alternative influences into his writing, Gottschalk follows his every step, supplying deep rhythmic grooves and powerful blues lines with commanding finesse. Gottschalk shines on the uptempo tracks “Black Train” and “A Mystic,” where he solidifies his role as the foundation of a dynamic power trio.
