Jay Collins, ‘One Final Note’

“…Lundbom is one of these players with his foot firmly in the rock camp, but with plenty of the grit of jazz to keep things interesting. With Big Five Chord, the mid-20ish Lundbom and his associates convince that fusion can mean something appetizing in the 21st Century with a seven-composition program that romps, serenades, and well, rocks… Though Lundbom is quite an instrumentalist considering his age, he isn’t out to open his hefty bag of skills with each turn… Rather, this is a group effort and his partners are more than happy to come along for the ride… Big Five Chord is further evidence that guitar-focused music can provide thoughtful, yet thrilling results and that Lundbom is off to a fine start.”
