Re­views this month cover an ex­cit­ing spec­trum of re­cent gui­tar-led re­leases...

Those of you who fol­lowed Nigel’s re­cent GT col­umns will at­test to his amaz­ing abil­i­ties. Heads & Tales Vol 2 is a dou­ble CD, the first com­pris­ing self-penned com­po­si­tions, the sec­ond a set of solo or over­dubbed duet jazz stan­dards so we get to hear both sides of the man. Joined on CD 1 by his trio with Ham­mond or­gan­ist Ross Stan­ley and drum­mer Matt Home, plus guest stars Alex Gar­nett and Vasilis Xenopou­los on sax, Price bounds through the ma­te­rial, dis­play­ing in­flu­ences from Wes Mont­gomery to Pat Martino and be­yond. On disc 2 we hear his ap­proach to a range of jazz stan­dards, and tunes like Have You Met Miss Jones and Come Rain Or Shine are de­liv­ered su­perbly. If stel­lar jazz gui­tar play­ing is your thing, check this one out.
