More Info:

Contemplation is the long awaited second release from San Francisco based guitarist and composer Keith Andrew. This beautifully produced and packaged CD not only features the masterful guitar work of Keith Andrew, it also showcases his multi-instrumental talents creating beautiful and melodic textures and soulful grooves! Some of the notable tracks are the energetic and funky "Today's the Day" and the title track "Contemplation" featuring his exceptional electric and acoustic guitar work! Keith Andrew also does a bluesy and eclectic version of the classic "Tequila" paying homage to his guitar heroes Wes Montgomery, George Benson and Larry Carlton. Adding to the rich and contemplative tone of the album is the stirring and meditative "Cool Breeze" featuring the vocals and lyrics of singer songwriter John Mize. The album also features a high energy Latin and world inspired composition "First Kiss" which further demonstrates Keith's improvisational sophistication. The CD would not be complete without the hard driving blues and rock edged fusion tunes: "Boyo Poyo" and "Meathead" showcasing the Jazz Funk Fusion roots of Keith Andrew! This new project also features the exceptional bass playing of Marcus Phillips whose credits include: Tony Toni Tone, Ledisi and the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir. If you have been contemplating adding a great new smooth jazz CD to your collection, you will not go wrong with Keith Andrew's Contemplation!
