“The Duo Sonare presents recording premieres of guitar music by Mauro Giuliano and Ferdinando Carulli on historical instruments: arrangements of compositions by Mozart and fascinating original works by these two contemporaries of his.”
This latest album from the Katona Twins fully sustains the standards set by their previous three releases for Channel Classic. … Highly recommended.
Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
When the network did not exist and at the time of purchase music, I often faced sealed LPs, without oportunity able to listen them. How to choose and buy without a mistake?
Well, in my case I always depended on my instincts. Sometimes a simple but attractive cover was the final choice (evidently based on artists I knew). An excellent example is this double LP of “The John Renbourn Group”, knew about John Renbourn next to Jacqui McShee (Both from Pentangle).
Fans of Strunz & Farah will find pleasing similarities on this release by the spirited duo of Lara And Reyes. Rooted in improvisation, Two Guitars… borrows from traditions that span the globe: rhythms of Africa and South and Central America, chord structures from Spain and Mexico. You'll hear melodic scales that can be traced to the Mediterranean, Middle East and India. This range of tonal colors creates an original repertoire of moving music with insistent rhythms and challenging, exotic harmonic and melodic diversity. Bass and percussion, by Randy Johnson and Eric Casillas respectively provide the fuel, while the guitaristics of the two lead players provide more than ample passion…
Ever the sonic experimentalist, Mike Oldfield uses guitars exclusively (strummed, plucked, struck, sampled, etc.) to create every sound on Guitars. Perhaps an intentional response to the composer's previous assortment of electronic recordings, the album suffers from its form-over-substance concept…
If you thought that Chris Rea's reasonably priced 11 CD boxset called Blue Guitars, featuring over 130 songs, was a bit too much to take in at one time, then this two CD distillation might be more your style. Here, the best 22 tracks from the box are compiled on two CDs for your sampling pleasure. Includes 'Where the Blues Come From', 'The Soul of My Father's Shadow', 'Lucky Day', 'Who Killed Love' and more.
