Jeff Linsky
California
Concord Vista

On his second Concord release, guitarist Jeff Linsky's style is appropriately laid back on 11 originals that pay tribute to his native California. "Samba Cruz" and "Casa Miguel" are two of the more energetic numbers, with Brazilian rhythms courtesy of percussionist Michael Spiro and drummer Paul Van Waganingen, and the vocalese of Claudia Villela, a low key Tania Maria. "Murrieta's Farewell" is stately and flamenco-like. Throughout, Linsky's guitar lines are crystalline, if occasionally too lulling.
