JON GOMM Don’t Panic (Performing Chimp)
Virtuosity should never be an end in itself. Believe me. Jon Gomm (like Tommy Emmanuel) has cottoned onto utilizing the acoustic guitar in unique ways. Basically, the guitar is used to produce every sound heard on Don’t Panic. Well and good in itself but what about the songs. Nothing earth-shattering mind, serviceable pop-rock with jazz fusion touches but coupled with said virtuosity, Don’t Panic offers enough distinctive sounds and music to keep most short attention spans in our modern rock world.
