New album from Lambo Law Guitar Duet soothes and mesmerizes

August 9, 2011 (Brunswick, ME) Written by Robert Sutton. The shimmering acoustic beauty of Lambo Law Guitar Duet's Molly Brown paints a portrait of summer that is nearly impossible to let go of.
Featuring Dave Lawlor on 6-string guitar and Neil Lamb on 7-string guitar, Molly Brown defines tastefulness and elegance while conveying warm, heartfelt emotions that transcend an ordinary jam session. The two develop a hypnotic chemistry, often locked in lushly textured grooves that both soothe and mesmerize the listener.
One of the album's unique qualities is how Lamb and Lawlor separated their contributions from speaker to speaker, with Lamb on the right channel and Lawlor on the left channel. Not only does this create space between the two, it produces a feeling of movement. The opening track, "Wes Tribute," paying homage to jazz legend Wes Montgomery, achieves a delicate balance of highs and lows. Lawlor and Lamb are both excellent players, and to hear them unveil such gorgeous melodies is a thrilling experience.
However, the record doesn't just consist of collaborations, either. On his cover of "P.S. I Love You," Lawlor's softly strummed guitar achieves the kind of romantic depth that the Beatles weren't yet capable of on their 1962 original.
Nevertheless, the best moments on Molly Brown are when Lamb and Lawlor are caught in the moment, firmly embedded in that zone that musicians get into when the rhythm and inspiration take over. Listen to these gentlemen create magic on "Logical Extension," offering an upbeat yet sweltering performance that knocks this album out of the park.
