Mike Keneally

I've know about Mike Keneally for a while but somehow was never moved to check him out until I read a Guitar Player magazine interview with him on the occasion of his new album,  You Must Be This Tall,  and learned that he had previously released a collaboration between himself and one of my all-time favorite musicians, Andy Partridge of XTC fame – Wing Beat Fantastic. So I downloaded it from Amazon, loved it, and then went out and got the new one. Loved that one, too.

Some thoughts while listening to You Must Be This Tall: Keneally's guitar parts by turns roll, ramble, snake, dart, flit, bark, snarl, roar, chuckle as they make their way across a colorful, vivid musical landscape.
