ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Everything I play is from the heart.

This album reflects my eclectic tastes in guitar music, which includes flamenco, Latin, classical, and fingerstyle blues.

La Noche is a flamenco siguiryas; Double Tremolo uses the flamenco tremolo (iami vs. the classical ami, in guitar jargon); Tarantas is a traditional flamenco form, with a second guitar by Koky Medina; and Roombah's rhythm track is rumba flamenca.

I like to compose in traditional Latin folk styles. The Andinito lead melody is accompanied by me playing guitar and the Andean charango I got from the great charanguero Jaime Torres. Lamento Peruano has a second guitar by Maximiliano Maltez, my guitar partner in JeffenMaxx. Jobim is a bossa nova tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim. Montañas is a guitar duet using Andino melodies and a rumba accompaniment.

Rhapsody, Emblem of Stars, Rainy Night, Berceuse, and Adagio are in classical styles from Baroque to Romantic, and Ye Soldier's Dance is an English Renaissance lute piece to which I added a second part.

Reverend Gary refers to Reverend Gary Davis, whose riff I learned from another guitarist outside Morrie's Bar in Ithaca, New York in 1975; and The Hackensack Tack and Fort Mudge Moan are fingerstyle pieces using lots of slurs and Chet Atkins-style alternating bass lines. The latter title is taken from Walt Kelly's Pogo comic, where the characters would often lounge in boats whose names would change in each panel.

I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed composing and playing these pieces.
