Wide Hive Players II
Players II Guitar is a conglomerate musical effort spanning funk, soul, jazz, and rock that showcases Harvey Mandel (Rolling Stones, Canned Heat), Calvin Keys (Ray Charles, Black Jazz), Barry Finnerty (The Crusaders, Chico Hamilton), and Larry Coryell (Charles Mingus, Arista Records).
Keyboard and bass player Matt Montgomery shares his songwriting talents on four tracks, with contributions from label owner/engineer Gregory Howe and trombonist Mike Rinta finishing out the record.
