THE ESSENTIAL GARY LUCAS offers ample evidence of this maverick artist’s trailblazing and unique career, from his early work on stage and record with Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band, to his landmark work with Jeff Buckley and his one-of-a-kind psychedelic jazz-rock band Gods and Monsters, though his extraordinary and extensive multi-genre solo catalogue – a truly epic body of work that spans psychedelic rock, film music, classical, electronica, jazz, blues, avant-garde, and world music excursions through 1930s Chinese pop, Hungarian folk, raga, and more, all unified by Lucas’s virtuosic guitar and ceaselessly questing spirit. The album has already gained praise from Premier Guitar who is spotlighting the album in an upcoming print issue of the magazine, but posted a rave review online, writing, “illuminates the entire emotional and sonic spectrum of electric guitar.”
