Incendiary inspirational grooves Elliott Henshaw – Who’d Have Guest?

Incendiary inspirational grooves Elliott Henshaw – WHO’D HAVE GUEST?:  Dynamic drummer Elliott has accomplished something no other player/band has ever done before… he made my (permanent) iPhone playlist immediately after I listened to the first four bars of the splendid opener, “Tea & Toast” (featuring Bob Mintzer)… brilliant energy and incendiary inspirational grooves made that an easy choice… before you move on, check out (just) a few of the amazing projects Elliott has been part of…

If you found the groove in this video amazing, you’ll want to make sure you SUBSCRIBE to Elliott’s YouTube channel (which I did right away).

Besides Elliott’s totally moving drum work, you’ll hear bass by Andrew McKinney, Matt Steele on keys, James Pusey doing guitar and saxophonist Simon Willescroft (with many more players, too) as they work together on stunners like the down & funky “Faithless“… Noel Sullivan’s soulful vocal helps to make the tune one DJ’s are gonna’ be pluggin’ into playlists for years to come!

Something else that makes the album stand out from the rest of the pack is the variety Elliott offers up… tunes like the beautiful “JP” make full use of strings and amazing changes throughout the 4:46 gem to keep your ears guessing… a stellar performance.

As I listened to the groovin’ guitar leads on “Direct Input“, I (immediately) made my choice for personal favorite of the eleven exciting tunes offered up… in fact, this song is what made me choose the entire album for my iPhone player (something that ONLY happens for the very best music)!

I give Elliott and all his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99… get more information on Elliott’s BandCamp page for the album.                          Rotcod Zzaj
