Review: “Three Guitars” is one release that certainly doesn’t disappoint. This is one artist that brings to the table effective songwriting with an amazing musicianship and a wide depth of playing expertise. Meshed with a superlative Americana Blues and Modern Guitar Jazz I give Lamberth high marks for pick to of the best genera’s for this instrument. This CD is quite exhilarating and entertaining overall with amazing playing and writing abilities coupled with impressive musicianship. Overall it was one heck of a ride which personifies the experience of the guitar itself. It even touches a wide range of emotions. All in all – all songs are wonderfully simple but masterful in their overall arrangements. Music reminded me of a cross between Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burell, Pat Martino, Les Paul and even Jim Hall. There are some fantastic moments on this CD which gives each song grouping an amazing feel emotionally when connecting with the listener.
Criticism: Though the overall sound quality is top tiered – to be honest I’m not a fan of the cut and pasted musicianship throughout. I’m almost 100% convinced the bass, drums are not real instruments and I suspect Lamberth did this whole CD by himself. Another comment although it’s not an official hit: Why not call the CD “2 Guitars” to match the 2 different playing styles on the CD.
