ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Pat Metheny-like" - The New York TImes

"A minor (key) masterpiece." - All About Jazz

"You'll be granted passage to some of the loveliest compositions I've ever heard be self-produced by an independent artist. Ganz' halting phrases are like tentative steps into a realm of sanctity." -Minor7th Acoustic Guitar Webzine

Finally. Beautiful. So deep.
I once sat privy to a scene: Seated on a couch, tuxedo'd in Cape Cod, his OWN wedding party waiting ten minutes down the road, Keith Ganz shouted "one more chorus!" to his piano buddy across the room. He was surrounded by his true loves that day. FINALLY, along comes Music for People, a slew of different guitars, echoes of a dozen genres, but not the least disconnected or buffet. There exists a loving loneliness in this work, a heartbreaking tonality and compassion. Keith's virtuosity is undeniable, but there is no hint of pyrotechnics here, nothing extra; knowledge never eclipses emotion. The recording is simply beautiful. New York taxis roar, Keith breathes between phrases, overdubs click -- all haphazard dimensionality as time bends and rules break. Deep stuff. If you listen on headphones, your loved one approaches, presses his/her face against yours, says, "what IS that?" It's one of my favorite records. PEOPLE, Keith Ganz seems to've composed a record for us, and tirelessly in spite.
