This album is a fair representation of his style and ability. His technique is beyond anything normal players can hope for.
Ben Monder is really pushing the bar of what kindof sounds you can make on a guitar. His knowledge of chords is unbelievable.
His music draws from 20th century music and is always exciting. On this recording he uses voice where most peo¬ple might use sax or trumpet. It’s exciting and complex… too complex for most listeners, but rewarding for those interested in modern music. Grooves like crazy.
