Martin Barre, long time guitarist for Jethro Tull has released his third solo album, "Stage Left", which features his legendary guitar sound across thirteen instrumental (plus one vocal accompanied) tunes. Patrick Lydon, who writes for Tull World, raves, "Martin's style of writing and his sound has definitely progressed over the course of his three solo albums, yet it still retains that key sound and style you expect from Martin Barre. His music has a certain finesse to it that you don't really hear that often anymore.You can tell Martin really takes some care in putting these tracks together, and although they may not be awash with technically challenging, fingers of fire passages, it makes up for it with a great mix of fun and beautiful melodies. Plus, there's enough of the fast stuff in there to let you know Martin can still throw down those fiery licks like no one's business."
