    Language of the Flame/Keeper of the Flame

    I didn't think it was possible that Michael Gulezian could top his ''Dare of an Angel'' CD, but he has done it with the ''Language of the Flame.'' I've seen Gulezian perform at colleges, and it's obvious that Gulezian is the ''Dharma Heir '' of many of the great finger picking acoustic masters who have gone before. i.e. John Fahey, Michael Hedges. On a recent vacation to the Berkshires of Massachusetts, I was so transported by ''Language of the Flame'' that I drove the wrong way and ended up in New York City. I'd like to thank the artist for extending my vacation an extra day!

    Dancing, Burning, Bright!

    We human folks are drawn to fire. It gives us light. It gives us heat. The crackling soothes us. But, benevolent as it may be, it can also burn and scar, frighten and rage out of control before we realize what has happened. Michael Gulezian shows that it takes wood ¿ guitar wood ¿ to make something that hot on his newest album, the aptly named ¿Language of the Flame.¿ With a percussiveness not unlike snapping fire and a driven passion, the music of ¿Flame¿ is a departure from earlier works. Seeming to find a new aggressiveness, Gulezian works his guitars hard, slapping their bodies, attacking their metal strings in a melodic fury. Some pieces display a darker side of Gulezian, with unexpected discordances (¿The Room of Doom¿, ¿Jello Moves¿) very different from the brighter works he is better known for. Gulezian hasn¿t totally forgotten the sound fans are familiar with, he¿s just expanded on the sounds we¿ve heard snippets of in various songs. There is a little agony here, (¿My Trampoline Heart¿ ¿All We¿ll Never Be¿) touching expressions about how the joyful, the open, the loving people often become the hurting people, and of how intense, how burning, that hurt can be. But such people as Gulezian take it as it comes ¿ as a reminder that the intensity of joys is just as strong. And Gulezian finally lets us hear his other voice in his haunting, memorable rendition of Stephen Foster¿s classic ¿Oh Susanna.¿ Adorned with simple, glorious harmonies, this is the song you¿ve never heard before, about a love so strong that it drives a broken man across miles of country to find that perfect love, and of what will happen if he never finds her. Of all the pieces I have heard him perform live, it has always been my personal favourite; I always feel heartbroken, like I too am searching. Perhaps all that driving over the vast country on constant tours brings Gulezian to a better understanding of the song than most. Other pieces on this incredibly diverse album include the very sexy ¿Undo the Buncomb¿ which begins with an almost Spanish sound , or something reminiscent of a hot, August night by a gypsy campfire. ¿Little Meggie¿ is lilting, dancing and joyful ¿ it is in some ways epitomizes Gulezian¿s live performances ¿ full of fun, endless energy and lots of smiling, as does the opening track, ¿¿I¿m No Seismologist,¿ - Chortled the Metrognome,¿ (Gulezian has always had a flair for the perfect name for something.) The final piece on the album, ¿Michael Hedges Goes to Heaven,¿ is a touching, beautiful memorial to Gulezian¿s friend and fellow guitar player. It is stars pulled from the sky, melted into strings and then played by a seraph. It stands alone, from the first gigantic, ringing note as a rising, eternal song that the heart will remember long after the sound is gone. Those who enjoy those who have mastered their musical crafts; appreciate driven, passionate music and musicians; love sounds that push the instruments to their fullest, unrecognized potential, will love ¿Flame.¿ If you¿ve enjoyed the music of Michael Hedges, love fingerstyle guitar, or are a fan of PRI¿s program ¿Echoes,¿ you should certainly try this sound. And beyond that, if you are a joyful, intense, lover of people, the world and things of great beauty, you will find kinship around Gulezian¿s flames.
