It is difficult to really describe such beautiful acoustic guitar playing that can magically weave rhythm and melody together. I've read of players who could make their instruments sing like whispers of the wind or birds in the sky, but classical music is so constricted and scripted I didn't believe the authors of those stories. After hearing this duo's album, I understand what the authors of those stories were trying to explain. In this album I hear more than just a pretty tune, I can really hear sounds of the wind blowing in the trees. I can hear the ocean lapping against the sand of a far-off island somewhere in the ocean. I can feel like I am in the middle of villa in Spain or Italy, and I can see the beautiful colors of the flowers in springtime. It's music that has no connection to my past. It's not the same old stuff on popular radio. It's not connected to any movies or advertising. It's music I can have on in the background that doesn't drive me nuts with repetitive phrases or constant high notes that grate the ear. It's music that soothes with flavor, like a lime-infused cool drink on a hot day. Finally music through which I can lose my self into daydreams again.
