In recent years, Chance Hayden has established himself as one of the finer guitarists blowing outta’ Portland, Oregon, blessed with taste, melodicism, chops and fluency in various musical languages. He comes on strong but sweetly on his latest album, Grab & Go, a neo-soul-jazz outing with nods to historical roots, but also lined with modern twists and ear-grabbing harmonic rope-a-dope. This is party-ready jazz, but with brains and nimble guitar venturing in the bargain. -Josef Woodard (longtime contributor to DownBeat, Jazziz and author of biographies about Charles Lloyd and Charlie Haden)
