Mike Miller known for his work with Chick Corea and Boz Scaggs among others is a master guitarist, a gutsy fusioneer if you like and on Trust he takes you back perhaps to the 1980s and a time when big complex electric jazz themes were more the order of the day. The material is excellent and the level of soloing expert. The company the American keeps is formidable on the record with Jimmy Haslip, Gary Novak, Airto, Scott Kinsey, Chad Wackerman and Walt Fowler just some of the stellar names. 'Twankle' is the outrageous standout and the track featuring Airto, 'Mr Moreira', is also a highlight. The ''otherness'' of jazz is kept alive by players like Mike Miller away from the fickle nature of momentary fads and for craft, extravagant technique and a certain unorthodox spirit Trust steeped in a kind of American pastoral is a welcome alternative to what we are tediously fed by media pushing more throwaway fodder. What goes around… comes around let's hope anyway.
