From Chris Standring. Although I decided not to transcribe my guitar solos for this album (finding the time to do such an enormous amount of work becomes rarer these days) I did want to offer the music and arrangements so you can play along to the original album tracks, or have the music so you can perform these songs live in your own ensemble.

But it's when Standring fully utilizes his newfound love of the string quartet that the album flourishes, whether it's the suitably amusement park-style waltz of "Merry Go Round," the skittering drum'n'bass of "Escapade," or the percussive new age of "All That Glitters. A convincing foray into new territory, Electric Wonderland more than lives up to its name.
Listen to Electric Wonderland by Chris Standring - a new album (release date: March 20, 2012) @ New Releases No. The success of Chris Standring's groundbreaking 2010 CD Blue Bolero, which topped several year-end lists and produced a No. 1 single, made it a tough act for the guitarist to follow. But Standring has managed quite nicely with Electric Wonderland, his brand new 10-song CD of original songs that fuses elements of Blue Bolero's orchestral touches with a deft jazz-pop touch that's been a hallmark of Standring's stellar career. I feel like it's an extension of Blue Bolero, but a bit more playful and upbeat,' says Standring. It also came out much dreamier.
