More Than Just a Glance at Wayne Long
by Moe Masters
Wayne Long's new CD, "Only a Glance, is an instrumental beauty that lends
itself to being played repeatedly. It is one of those rare musical treats that
takes the listener on a journey, and struck me as a perfect choice for a road trip.
Like many of my favorite movies, every time I listened to this CD I found
something I'd missed on the last go round. Long's attention to detail is the
one variable that makes this a contender for the "deserted island" top ten choice.
The overall quality of this CD is best illustrated on his cover of a Ry Cooder song
from the movie "Paris Texas." Never mind that the movie is a study in drama,
this song is one of my all time favorites. With this song and the others, Long has
crafted a release that is emotional and dramatic. His songs and the songs he
chose to cover are offered up to the listener with a tremendous amount of love and
attention. It is readily apparent that a lot of time went into making this recording
what it is. So, don't walk - RUN out and grab yourself a copy.
