On his debut outing, "Dajinsaurus", American guitarist and songwriter David WRIGHT is supported by bassist Nob Kinukawa and drummer Jim Bove, although all the drum tracks were recorded several years earlier those of the other instruments (in 1998 and 2005 respectively) and, according to the press-kit, were digitally restored, cleaned, stereoized, edited and made sonically usable in 2006. One way or another, the sound of this CD-R album is something average between middling and acceptable, though none of the 19 instrumentals present leaves the impression of being sketched, thus proving that all of them were composed before the drummer played his parts and that the other guys just hadn't the opportunity to record in due time their own ones. The music ranges from classic Jazz-Fusion to the so-called guitar hero style, touching probably all of the intermediate directions as well. Recommended with reservations and only to those who equally appreciate such different artists as Al Dimeola, David Torn and Allan Holdsworth on the one hand and Steve Vai, Steve Stevens and Joe Satriani on the other.
