Stew Cutler is known as a guitar player with a keen edge and tasty licks. Critics and fans alike marvel at his deft touch and clever compositions. He has often been compared to the likes of John Scofield, Robben Ford, and the young John McLaughlin.

Now after recording albums in a more freewheeling style (Trio Music, Insignia), Stew sets out to plant his axe in more grounded material. So Many Streams is the result of wanting to record as he puts it "a rootsy, more R&B type thing." This record definitely has the funk and a whole lot more.

Opening with "Post Time," a funky vamp, sets the tone right away. You get drawn into a groove that is sustained throughout the disc; passing through tunes such as "Not To Worry," "The Grindstone," and "Gonna Find Her." Along the way, guest artists such as Jeb Loy NIchols (vocals on "Sparrow In The Kitchen") and Eliot Sharp (guitar in "Ardells Theme") lend their talents to the engaging compositions. The album builds to a satisfying climax with "Put A LIttle Love In Your Heart," the old Jackie DeShannon chestnut that in Stew's arrangement, is certainly more Memphis than Hollywood.

After showing that yes, he can play, Stew Cutler brings it all back home with So Many Streams.

Stew Cutler's latest CD release, So Many Streams, is on the FOUNTAINBLEU Entertainment label, distributed nationally by Burnside Distribution. For more information on Stew, interview requests, or promotional materials, please contact FOUNTAINBLEU at 718-296-8122.
