Album Notes
Time of Tranquility is the new CD from The Candlelight Guitarist. Centered on the theme of an evening gathering of friends & loved ones, it is instrumental music to warm heart 'n' soul. A highlight of the CD is "The Chef's Sonata"--a four-course musical tribute to the star of every great meal... the special person who turns a recipe into a savory experience.

All the nature sounds were recorded in Washington and along the Oregon coast. The opening bells heard in Bells of Eventide were recorded at the historic Mission San Juan Capistrano.

The "Trios and such" musicians...

Bobbye joined the famed Motown rhythm section at age fourteen, playing percussion on dozens of big Motown hits like "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" and "For Once In My Life."

The best yet from this unedr-rated artist
The Candlelight Guitarist keeps getting better and better. On his latest CD, he crafts relaxing yet "friendly" music that displays influences from new age, jazz, and classical. This is feel good music that soothes you without putting you to sleep. The inclusion of nature sounds, always tastefully inserted and expertly recorded, only enhances the flowing melodies. Whether he is joined by other accompanists or playing solo, The Candleight Guitarist is your tour guide to a land of easy-going, warm, and inviting instrumentals. I highly recommend this excellent album for acoustic music lovers.
