8 instrumentals for two guitars (double-tracked)

At the outset, funky riffs with a rockabilly hint move into jazz fusion vamps with flowing solos. Then an Al Dimeola-flavored etude breaks into a spacious jam reminescent of Larry Carlton. There is almost a soft arena-rock feel here (if such a thing exists) before a return to the original theme.

Then a funky slide brings us into a sweet latin groove with harmonized melodies, before the jam sets in, with soloist Mike Ohm soloing over Mike Ohm! Then, you realize two guitars are carrying everything!

From grooves influenced by John McLaughlin to textures akin to John Abercrombie, this CD carries you through each tune easily, with a full sound from two guitars. There are moments where classical etudes seem to coexist with jazz progessions, with a little swing here and there for seasoning, yet it all comes together in one musical package.

Lay back and enjoy a soaring guitar duet album from Mike Ohm.

Things Are Not What They Seem, 8 tracks of music.
