300 Miles by Hugh Ferguson

About the Album

A-D-D a fusion must!

Guitarist and composer Hugh Ferguson introduces his new CD A-D-D with Drummer Roger Carter and Bassist Brian Wright. From the opener 300 Miles to the final drum solo on Hot Line the music is powerful, tasteful and full of energy. The music transforms from chordal-melodic jazz, to rock-edgy with hints of classical on occasion.

Hugh Ferguson is a true Jedi Guitar Master of the highest level and A-D-D is highly recommended to fans of Allan Holdsworth, Jeff Beck, Pat Metheny and many other outstanding heavy fusion guitarists.

Roger Carter has a very impressive background in the drum corps arena including the Concord Blue Devils and this is his first recording in the jazz-fusion scene. His drumming will amaze you. Fans of Vinnie Colaiuta, Dennis Chambers, Chad Wackerman or other great fusion drummers will truly enjoy Rogerss technical abilities and musical feel on this CD.

Brian Wright brings his jazz and salsa background into the A-D-D mixes. Brian has a B.S. in upright bass and his feel and timing is impeccable. Not only does Brian act as the glue holding down the bottom and the rhythm, he also adds several great solos that will impress all upright bass musicians.

There is also a guest appearance by Austrian guitarist Alex Machacek on "Total Distraction."
