I’ve been spinning this disc a lot since I got it a couple weeks ago. Rick is a phenomenal guitarist who teaches at Berklee (actually, he’s Assistant Chair of the Guitar Dept at Berklee). The album is Rick (using a Telecaster) plus Jim Black on Drums and Tony Scherr on bass. His sound is somewhere between Jeff Beck and Marc Ribot. Check out the mp3 sample of “Left End” at Rick Peckham.com.
* Though their hairlines might indicate otherwise, Rick is no relation to my sometime collaborator Kevin Peckham.
