Wonderland Park: Just Get In

Just Get In is the debut album from Wonderland Park, an instrumental trio comprised of guitar virtuoso Allen Hinds, bassist Peter Hastings, and drummer Chris Wabich. Combining bits of jazz-rock fusion, Southern Rock, and flat out shred guitar, Just Get In is a joy to listen to, whether you are a fan of instrumental based guitar music or not. At the heart of the album of course is Hinds, a truly special player who can crank out some blistering leads as well as tug at your heart with an equally impressive melodic phrase. "All Due Respect" kicks things off in fine fashion, a bluesy track with some solid grooves and tasty lead guitar melodies, while the lengthy title track is a scorching jam fueled by some lethal solos from Hinds. For "Bobby's Big Wheel" the trio add in a touch of funk to their rock stew, complete with weaving, snaking guitars and mesmerizing rhythms. The guitarist digs into his jazzy bag of tricks for "Barron's Crossing", sort of like a cross between Larry Carlton and Danny Gatton, and the lengthy "Truth Be Told" again sees all sorts of jazz-fusion styled explorations by the guitarist, reminding at times of the great Mike Stern. The trio bounce back for some upbeat roots rock on the groove laden "Spittin' Image", and go deep into the blues for the closer "A Far Cry", complete with some really classy lead guitar work and slide from Hinds.

Filled with some soaring melodies and sizzling musical passages, Just Get In announces the arrival of a hot new trio on the scene, and further proof of Allen Hinds' ascent to guitar hero status.
