The Messenger is a project that reflects not only the guitarist’s virtuosity on his instrument , but also his impressive compositional skills- writing all but two tracks. “ I wanted to branch out a little bit more on this recording,” Kevin Eubanks states. “ I didn’t want to be as concerned with the ‘jazz sound’ as much; I wanted to let out a little bit more of what I’ve been musically exposed to.”. From the infectious groove of the little track that begins the program, the guitarist gives notice that a unique listening experience is on the way. Eubanks is joined on most tracks by his sterling Quartet: Billy Pierce on reeds, Rene Camacho on bass , Marvin “Mithy” Smith on drums and Joey De Leon , Jr on percussion. This project also has a family flavor, as Eubanks is joined by his brothers Robin and Duane.
