Overview

Flamenco takes a holiday on this smooth and sultry album by the German-born guitarist Govi. The musical odyssey begins with a percussive beat on "Rising in Love." Flamenco palmas clapping and strummed Spanish guitars surround Govi's passionate melody, while a warm bass and snappy Latin percussion keep the energy flowing. The flamenco fires are oxygen-fueled on "Mediterrano" as Govi's guitar accelerates, and then "Havana Sunset" settles the mood for a smoldering evening of romance. Don Lax on viola and violin adds come-hither flavors to the serenade. Lax also sits in on "Walking on Clouds," which features heavenly vibes courtesy of Karanesh's sound programming. Govi adds a lot of Latin percussion and flamenco keyboard colors, but the most arresting tracks on the album are his short solo, "Language of the Heart," and the multi-guitar "Garden of Eden." The album ends with "Wings of Love," a heartening anthem for flute and guitars that gently enfolds you in its rapture.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Zac Johnson
A refined collection of flamenco-styled classical guitar in Govi's familiar style. Seventh Heaven is an ideal soundtrack for sitting on the veranda, overlooking the coffee bean fields and sipping a fine dry wine -- or maybe just adding a little class to some re-heated Mexican food in your cramped apartment. The smooth, soft guitar work from this California-based musician has sold millions of albums and offers a perfect backdrop for a relaxing evening.
