I love this stuff. Great composition. What drums are you using? Nice guitar solo done on a keyboard ? I'm confused it almost sounds Allan holdswothy then boarders on John Hammer with a touch of Zawinul ... now towards the end that is a guitar . Awesome tone. Darn ... no download.

Thank you...
the first guitar solo is done on my strat into a Fulltone Ultimate Octave pedal into a 1965 blackfaced Fender Super Reverb. The second solo at the end was my vintage strat into my 2555 Marshall Silver Jubilee with a vintage 4x12 cab...thanks for listening. The drums are all Logic 7...lot of serious programming.

Aside from the obvious great guitar work, I dug that funky synth work before the 2:00 min mark.

jazzy funky....
Great guitar playing. Compared to other recent pieces by you I'd say this one is not as strong compositionally. It's all about the solos. Of course that's often the case in jazz. Still.

Great work Frank, I really enjoyed this. Plenty of variety in both the keyboard and guitar tones, delivered with your usual superlative chops. I didn't know you programmed the drums, I find it pretty amazing that they can sound as good as this

Love the funky groove. You have a way with drum tracks. This could be on a Tony Williams Lifetime album. Stellar guitar work. Cool effects. Really like those chords past 4:00. Tops.
