Finally the highly anticipated collaboration project between Peppino D’Agostino and Stef Burns is ready. Carrying the title of "Bayshore Road", this record consists of seven original songs and three covers (one of them being a snappy rendition of Joe Zawinul’s classic “Birdland”). In case you aren't familiar with D'Agostino and Burns, they both are rather renowned guitarists in their own field. Currently D'Agostino is a featured guitarist in the World Guitar Ensemble, which is an ensemble composed of seven of the world's top classical guitarists and D'Agostino. Thus far he has released ten albums and a DVD, and his skills as a fingerstyle guitarist are hailed. Burns, on the other hand, is a very creative electric guitarist, who's perhaps best known for his work with Alice Cooper, Y&T, Michael Bolton among others (including an appearance in “Wayne’s World”).

The different playing styles of D'Agostino and Burns blend seamlessly on this record. In addition, Sheila E. contributes percussion to four tracks. The material throughout the whole album is very good, although I must admit I find myself favouring some tunes over others. For example, "Better World" is definitely one of the highlights of "Bayshore Road" in my view.

The production on this album is also top-notch - the sounds are crystal clear and warm. Masaki Liu has performed well behind the mixing console. Overall, this is definitely an album worth checking out (especially if you're into guitar-oriented instrumental music).
