Gossip, Inspiration and Slander

You can’t fault Texas native Bryan Clark for a lack of ambition—Gossip, Inspiration and Slander is a two-disc set divided into acoustic and electric halves, and on the latter he ably handles all the instruments himself (excepting one rhythm guitar part and one bass line—hey, everyone needs a break). The full-band acoustic disc demonstrates his facility with bluegrass, while the electric disc gently rocks out while retaining some country flavor. Sometimes Gossip is a little too slick for its own good, especially on the electric cuts, but it’s still a dazzling display of virtuosity.
