ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Over the past century, the personal idioms of composers and musicians have been unable to resist the influx of music from all regions of the globe. Consequently, the distinction between “high” and “low” art that reigned for centuries no longer exists; the result has been music that is eclectic, music that transcends classification. While much of the material on Scott Wolf’s Un Viaje al Sur (A Journey South) is best described as folk-influenced art music, the eclecticism of the pieces indicates influences from a multitude of styles and genres unified by the warmth, emotion, and intimacy of Latin American music.

Wolf’s journey south takes the listener to Peru, Cuba, Paraguay, Mexico, Venezuela, and Argentina, offering a collection of songs inspired as much from the streets as the conservatory. While some of the pieces are standard guitar repertoire (Villalobos’ Chôro No.1 and Brouwer’s Danza del Altiplano) other selections (Pujol’s Hommage to Astor Piazzolla and Machado’s Caro Amigo Gudin) reflect Wolf’s appreciation for the more obscure music of these regions. (For an in depth description of the pieces on the album visit Wolf’s website at www.wolfguitar.net)

Growing up in the multicultural city of San Diego, less than an hour from the Mexican border, it seems only natural that Wolf would feel a certain affinity for Latin American music. With a rich musical background in flamenco, classical, and rock, Wolf is able to draw from a variety of influences to enhance the inherent eclecticism of these pieces. To that end, Wolf brings to the music a raw and emotional style that he absorbed during his time in Spain where he lived, studied, and played flamenco music. We also hear Wolf’s training as a Classical guitarist in his attention to intonation, his discipline and his subtlety on tracks such as Un Día de Noviembre. And finally, we hear in his playing remnants of his musical youth. As a teenage rock guitarist Wolf played in a variety of outfits, honing his skill as a talented and accomplished player, which is evident on certain passages of Brouwer’s Danza del Altiplano. It is clear that Wolf’s diverse musical background not only allows him to enrich the inherent eclecticism of these pieces but it allows him to offer his own unique interpretation of this music.

A wonderful debut album!
A beautiful selection of Latin American guitar music and very professionally executed! On his debut CD Scott Wolf presents a cross section of the richness that this music has to offer. Along some well known standards this CD contains many pieces that are less often heard – unjustified so, as Scott proves. His interpretations are masterful and display a deep insight into the character of the compositions. Be it the powerful "Danza del Altiplano", the tender "Un Dia de Noviembre" or the samba "Caro Amigo Gudin" Scott Wolf interprets all aspects of this captivating music with great artistry. I am looking forward to hearing more from this wonderful guitarist in anticipation.

Un Viaje Al Sur
Scott Wolfe is an incredibly talented and gifted guitarist who plays not only with mind and body, but with soul and spirit as well. Growing up and playing in rock bands with Scott, I could see that he had it in him to be a great guitar player, but I never imagined that he would excel to the ability of playing that he is at now!
