Album Notes
"Nocturna and Other Stories" is the first album by Vancouver-based Canadian composer, guitarist, vocalist, and instrumentalist, Cary Heuchert. Included are twelve instrumental tracks and one vocal performance ("Sundown Morning"). The album begins with "Nocturna", an eight-part song-cycle. Each phase flows into the next with a melodic interplay of electric guitars, fretless bass, and keyboards. After the dream sequence of the spacey "Nocturna", the musical journey continues with the electric guitar dialogues of "Black Dragon River" and "Across the Sky"; the acoustic guitar and bass on the only vocal song of the album, "Sundown Morning"; and the electric-folk and world-music of electric guitar and acoustic 12-string guitar on "The Far-Out East Mountain Suite"; concluding the album with the solo classical guitar performance, "Daybreak".
