“Sounds like John Lennon” - Ken Klimak, BDStudios

"Acoustic Mechanic" is a CD by Kent Welton, a skilled classical guitarist, who has brought you his talents on this CD in the form of songs that feature much more than guitar. Kent's impressive guitar work certainly stands on it's own on this CD. However, in addition to Kent's guitar work, the CD features passionate strings, airy syths, and wonderful piano work. The beautiful arrangements very effective meld various acoustic instruments, to provide each song a subtle life of it's own. "Night in Seville" leads off the album and sets the tone with a beautifully arranged and executed guitar piece. ""Morning Chamber" is a wonderful string arrangement and is undoubtedly an anthem to the beauty of a new day. "A Flutish Fancy," starts with a dark intensity and blooms into a fantasy-like movement. If you enjoy classical and new age music, you'll enjoy this CD.-

A GrIndie Award is RadioIndy's stamp of approval that this CD is an excellent quality CD. RadioIndy is pleased to present Kent Welton with a GrIndie award for his CD Relatively Gone... a pacifying collection of jazz instrumentals. Soothing and graceful best describe these free-flowing compositions... All in all, Kent consistently delivers great mind-easing jazz and easy-listening songs with Relatively Gone.

“A very satisfying recital”

Guitara Acoustica –
“The cd program is so varied it becomes a satisfying recital. Many of the pieces have a Spanish flavor to them, and there's also an influence of East Indian music”

Kent Welton - Guitara Acoustica - Pandit Press Music - PanditPress@cox.net, ***(*):

This is another of the increasing number of performer-produced CDs coming our way for possible review. It's a good-looking package but no notes whatever so I can't tell you a great deal about Kent, except for the notation: "Music and instruments by Kent Welton, except for compositions by J.S. Bach." The instrument is a type of guitar, electronically-treated on some tracks and sounding more like a Spanish guitar or even a lute on others.

I'm putting this in the jazz section because the 13 tracks have a strong improvisatory quality about them. There doesn't appear to be overdubbing - just a solo instrument, but the program is so varied it becomes a satisfying recital. Many of the pieces have a Spanish flavor to them, and there's also an influence of East Indian music, as in the final three selections which constitute the Poona Suite. Here's the program:

Viva Andalusia, Mi Encanto, Nocturno, Tranquilo, La Noche Mysterioso, Serenade Suave, Pavanna, Danza Viveta, Bach: Prelude in C, Bach: Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring, Poona Suite: Preludio/Andante/Espresivo.

Relatively Gone review
“Relatively Gone” by Kent Welton is a pacifying collection of jazz instrumentals. Soothing and graceful best describe these free-flowing compositions. “Sky Waltz” stands out for its beautiful guitar-tone lead and cohesive drum arrangement. “Orbiting Pluto” steers away from the generally organic atmosphere and assumes a more electric, transcendental sound. All in all, Kent consistently delivers great mind-easing jazz and easy-listening songs with “Relatively Gone.”- Xavier P. and RadioIndy.com
