Steve Khan, Rob Mounsey. Good '87 duo session, in which session and studio ace guitarist Steve Khan went against his reputation and did an album of duets with keyboardist and vocalist Rob Mounsey that weren't just funk and fusion, but mostly jazz-tinged instrumentals.
Steve Khan, Rob Mounsey - Local Color.
The CD features seven instrumental tracks, each long enough for some improvised, extended interplay. As a whole, the effort does not hold up that well through the years, sounding dated and overproduced at times. The Hunt conjures up the give and take of a hunter and its prey, and I See a Long Journey casts a reflective spell over the listener. Mr. Khan works hard to fit his acoustic guitars into the swirling soundscapes of Mr. Mounsey, usually with excellent effect and timing, and sounding nothing like the funk-fusion player with which he is typically associated. Mounsey does not always, however, create a sustainable counterpoint, sometimes drifting too far, sometimes getting too creative, but sometimes infusing just the right touch.
