"Abstract Logic" marks the first time the late great guitar player Shawn Lane contributed to a Jonas Hellborg recording. It was a collaboration that lasted 10 years, 8 records and hundreds of live shows on 4 of the world's 5 continents. Now remixed with 2 previously unreleased bonus tracks. Recall this was the album that Rog The Frog Billerey-Mosier remarked, "While the music is very melodic free-form fusion, Lane's warm metal guitar sound adds a very pronounced instrumental metal feel to Hellborg's all-over-the-map jazz/funk/progressive bass lines and Baker's jazzy cymbals. As is traditional within the genre, the songs consist of melodic heads and solo sections, but their fluid structure never makes them sound like tedious, predictable jazz standards. While Hellborg and Baker are remarkable musicians in their own right, the most striking feature of this record (and its various follow-ups) is Lane's superhuman musical talent, both on the guitar and on the piano. His guitar lines, which evoke Eric Johnson and Allan Holdsworth, are always melodic and inventive, thanks to Lane's very distinctive use of wider intervals than are commonly heard on rock/metal/fusion albums."
