Shakin' Not Stirred

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Huey
Guitarist Brian Hughes harks back to the early '70s Creed Taylor sound on Shakin' Not Stirred, mixing blues, Brazilian and Latin rhythms, and atmospheric early fusion sounds in ways that often resemble the CTI recordings of Freddie Hubbard or Stanley Turrentine. The sound is certainly accessible, but it isn't blatant commercial pandering -- it's obvious that Hughes has genuine affection for this style of music and knows precisely what made it compelling to begin with. Jazz purists may be dismissive, but fusion fans unfamiliar with Hughes may have a discovery to make.
