Overview

More than any other instrument, the guitar represents the intersection of several different musical styles. It has its own rich classical tradition; its use in Spanish traditional music has influenced a whole host of classical composers who never wrote a note for the instrument; and, of course, it is the primary expressive vehicle for pop and folk musicians. This album by the virtuoso Los Angeles Guitar Quartet explores the instrument's stylistic boundaries and stakes out a wide and varied landscape -- from an arrangement of Sting's "Fragile" to the Afro-Cuban rhythms of Eduardo Martín's "Hasta Alicia Baila" to the sultry steps of Astor Piazzolla's "Fuga y Misterio" to a suite from Bizet's opera Carmen. But despite the diversity encompassed here, the program hangs together well, thanks in large part to the vital and sophisticated performances by the Quartet. Breezy yet serious, LAGQ Latin is impossible to categorize, and that's a very good thing.
