Three guitarists displaying their chops can be a recipe for a wank-fest. But Jimmy Herrington, Wayne Krantz, and Michael Landau, performing as The Ringers, are not only three of the most technically proficient players in the world, they are three of the most musical. As happy to not play as to play, they solo and accompany here, each inhabiting a distinct musical space. Add bassist Etienne Mbappe from the Zawinul Syndicate and drummer extraordinaire Keith Carlock (Sting, Steely Dan) and you have instead a recipe for a gourmet guitar feast. Perhaps not avant-garde, but definitely modern.
