P.Bensusan, A.York, B.Gore, Guinga, International Guitar Night  

 

CD Favored Nations Acoustic  2004 (FNA5080-2)

 

Brian Gore is the creator of this "acoustic night", a project similar to what Beppe Gambetta place every year in Italy. Again, four guitarists wish to pool their experiences and  to try to find new stimuli and ideas. Especially in duets and in quartet, we may note the fellowship between the musicians. The logo of the cover by Bill Russell is as interesting as the photographs by Kevin Estrada.

 

Brian Gore č l'ideatore di questa "acoustic night" , un progetto simile a quello che Beppe Gambetta realizza ogni anno in Italia. Anche in questo caso quattro chitarristi, desiderosi di mettere insieme le loro esperienze e confrontarsi per trovare nuovi stimoli e idee. Soprattutto nei duetti e nel trascinante quartetto conclusivo si nota l'affiatamento tra i musicisti. Il logo di copertina di Bill Russell č interessante cosė come le fotografie di Kevin Estrada.
