A virtual primer in the art of soul-jazz guitar, Eddie Fisher and the Next Hundred Years is a record of uncommon virtue and consummate skill. A longtime R&B sideman behind greats including Solomon Burke and Albert King, Fisher clearly relishes his turn in the spotlight, unspooling a series of endlessly inventive solos boasting the reach and consciousness of psychedelia. Backed only by an uncredited bassist and drummer, Fisher shifts gears effortlessly, transitioning from nuanced, intimate melodies to wild flights of fancy in the blink of an eye. Songs including “Jeremiah Pucket,” “Land of Our Father,” and “Either One” twist and turn like rides at an amusement park, achieving a comparable excitement and awe.
