ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The CD begins with Sugarloaf Ridge, a march featuring viola de gamba, adding an almost bagpipe character, and hammered dulcimer. It is evocative of the 1860's, Civil War era. Madison Moon follows, more of a fusion piece with contrasting minor and major key sections. It features 12-string and Kalimba. Jerry's Jig is the most Celtic piece on the CD. On this piece you will find overlapping guitar lines and hammered dulcimer. Wayward is a quirky tune with the melody played on a resonator guitar with a slide and doubled with another acoustic guitar. The next tune Orangewalk is named for a small town in Belize and has a strong samba feel.
Across the Fields is a pastoral piece that begins with solo cello and builds into a full rhythm section. River1s End is a bossa nova with alto sax, trying to re-create the Paul Desmond-Jim Hall sound. This is also the only song that uses electric guitar, a Gibson hollowbody jazz guitar. At Night the Street is an acoustic funk jazz piece with congas adding some spice. October Rain is a moody jazz ballad. The CD concludes with Whispering Falls named for a small waterfall in the Grand Canyon, and is a short duet with guitar and hammered dulcimer.

Dan Goldfus is a Sonoma County California musician who is known for his eclectic style and versatility. Dan is a featured guitarist for the Jazz on the Vine series of CD's, the Project's core group of musicians have played together in various contexts for over 20 years.>The CD begins with Sugarloaf Ridge, a march featuring viola de gamba,

Bruce Ruttenburg

Wonderful textures, evocotive rhythms, foreign land color, and festive mood musi
Evocative music that sends the listener deep inside to a wonder land of texture, rhythm, mood and color. If I were in Goldfus' Sonoma County and tasting wines, I might find hints of Carlos Santana, John Scofield, Ralph Carter, George Winston and Jerry Garcia... but really, it all original.
