    Ken Aldcroft has released Big Picture, a CD featuring Aldcroft on guitar along with Brian Harding and drummer Nick Gaffaney. It takes a few listens to connect with the spare sound of the bass-less trio. But the group's challenging approach rewards repeated listening. These include: Aldcroft's riffs on "Spiritual" and "Doogie/Like Father", which sound like they're inspired by African legend Feli Kuti, thanks to each player's ingenuity in creating solos or background patterns that fit this unique context.
