    Composer: Elliott Sharp.
    Elliott Sharp's Terraplane: E# (guitars); Alex Harding (baritone saxophone); Curtis Fowlkes (trombone); Dave Hofstra (bass instrument); Lance Carter (drums).
    Personnel: Eric Mingus, Tracie Morris (vocals).
    Additional personnel: Hubert Sumlin (guitar).
    Few others besides avant-garde composer/instrumentalist Elliott Sharp could record a collection of blues songs and make them sound like a new genre altogether, a sort of blues/folk/jazz/new age sound with droning keyboards, slinky reverbed vocals, sinuous guitar parts, and angstful horns. The album is by turns haunting, sexy, volatile, and soothing.

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (p.61) - "Bold assertiveness and a palpable sense of adventure are the essential elements of New York guitarist Sharp's electric blues."
    JazzTimes (p.108) - "Elliott Sharp's guitar can rip flesh, thanks to his astounding fretwork skills and an inventive musical vocabulary....This is the real blues of the 21st century."
    Global Rhythm (Publication) (p.47) - "[With] a more open-ended kind of jazz processional, which leaves enormous empty space for Sharp to roam, blasting out his dense, knotted lines."
