ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Natural High" is the exciting debut solo release from guitarist, Coleman Mellett. On this CD, Mellett fuses a melange of different guitar styles including bebop, samba, fusion, and flamenco, into an entertaining sonic collage. The CD culminates in a 10 minute medley of songs by Chuck Mangione with whom Mellett has been touring for the past decade.

Highly Recommended
Coleman Mellett's CD, Natural High, is filled with beautiful melodies, some of which were written by Mellett, showing him to be a strong composer and guitarist. What stands out on this CD is the beauty and soulfulness of his playing and compositions. Already looking forward to his next CD!

YOU WERE LOVED AND YOU ARE MISSED !
Coleman's music is masterful. It's a comfort to know we'll still have his recordings to remember the good times seeing him play live, his infectious smile and his sweet nature. Rest peacefully Coleman. Watch over Jeanie from above.

Great Guitar - Live and Recorded!!
My Dad & I have seen Coleman twice this year (performing with Chuck Mangione) and we were both impressed. I finally bought CDs for both of us and it is awesome! You will not be disappointed with this one!

So Sweet
Coleman Mellett's playing is mellow, soothing, gentle, engaging. "Natural High" is especially poignant because we now know his beautiful debut album has become also his epitaph. In the few weeks I've had his CD, I've played it many times and have heard something new each time.

This is a must have CD for anyone who appreciates great guitar playing. Coleman is an incredible talent. Playing with subtlety and making it all sound so effortless, he masters classics such as Dizzy's Con Alma, Wes Montgomery's playful Jingles and the beautiful "Skylark" all with his own creative and imaginative touch. Coleman plays seven guitars on this CD. Quite an incredible feat. My personal favorites include Con Alma and his originals, For Joyce and Lummi Island. Don't know where Lummi Island is located, but I'd love to visit someday after hearing the song that was inspired by it !
I love this CD and have purchased copies for friends who appreciate great guitar and wonderful soulful music !!!! In fact the term Soulful sums it all up for me. Thanks Coleman !!!

A wonerful overview of the palette of Mr. Mellett.
AS jazz guitar recordings go this is thouroughly accessable to the average listener whilst keeping the more sophisticated musically fed. As opposed to taking a "Straight Ahead" stance, Coleman has decided to let the rest of us in with a decidedly breezy mediterranean approach thus yeilding this collection much more user friendly as well as a primer of how one can be open without being treacally or pendantic. "Jingles" is a wonderful homage to Wes compleate with [thankfully] Wes' sense of humor. Perfect for an evening at hoem with someone you love, "Natural High" is a Natural!

As a Jazz guitar builder there is nothing I enjoy more than hearing an accomplished guitarist use the tool that I have created to make music. With "Natural High" Coleman Mellett has not only created Music but, he has recorded a album that respects the Origins of Jazz guitar. Paying homage to your teachers is one of the qualities that makes your work real, Natural and unpretentious. This Melodious ear pleasing piece is a pleasure to play (say that 10 times fast) Thank You Coleman.
