Johnny A.
Sometime Tuesday Morning
Favored Nations

Johnny A.'s skilled chops, unexpected covers and ear-catching original compositions make Sometime Tuesday Morning a superlative rock guitar album. His slinky midnight guitar reaches back to classic instrumental guitar bands like The Shadows and '70's power blues licks. Johnny A. carries this off with the skill of a six-string maestro that piloted Peter Wolf's solo comeback as musical director, co-producer and guitarist. After ably carrying out Wolf's vision of a guitarist, Johnny A. unleashes seven years of pent-up creativity on Sometime Tuesday Morning. The instrumental album is Johnny's opportunity to let his ability and fretwork take the place of a singer. Soulful instrumental ballads and catchy pop hook licks keep this album varied and moving. Among the cleverly covered songs are Jimmy Webb's maudlin "Wichita Lineman" and a Tex-Mex "Walk Don't Run" (The Ventures). (4.5)
