Glenn Alexander features the leader/guitarist in various electronic jazz/rock settings, with guest artists like Randy Brecker and Mino Cinelu. But the most impressive thing about Alexander’s album isn’t who he got to play on it, or his solid backup band – it’s the quality of the songwriting. Some is Return To Forever-influenced, some very Holdsworth, but the tunes build nicely, often enhanced by some interesting musical curves. And they don’t max out on every tune. There’s some poise shown. Alexander is in control in the fluid stream-of-note passages, the synth power-chord progressions, or round-tone jazz settings, such as on “Those Closest.”
