Australian fusion/jazz guitarist Glenn Cannon is back with Clockwork for 2009. Cannon has put together numerous talented musicians for this followup to 2004's "Leverage". Luke Howard mans keyboards, while Gavin Pearce holds down the low end. Tim Wilson doubles on flutes and saxophones, while Danny Farrugia kicks it on drums. Jarvier Fredes contributes percussion layers, and Jon-Erik Andreassen adds drum programming to the mix.
As Darryn Farrugia has previously written, "Compositionally speaking, Glenn is a composer of immense talent who manages to intertwine complex chord changes and intellectually stimulating melodies without ever sacrificing musicality. His influences are vast but emerge in the form of an individual with something fresh to offer." You'll want to add Clockwork to your Cannon collection. - guitarnine records
