5.0 out of 5 stars solo guitarist shines in synergy of master musicians January 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
First off, this is a beautiful CD. But if you're looking for the monster acoustic version of Michael Gulezian, I'd recommend the more recent (and astoundingly great) release, "Language of the Flame."

The Dare of an Angel features additional instrumentation besides acoustic guitar. That usually spells disaster for guitar soloists out to expand their sonic palate, but the good news is that Gulezian completely avoids that trap - this music snaps and jumps, sparkles and breathes, and is very much alive. The percussion (Ian Dogole), piano (Ira Stein), violin (Charlie Bisharat), and bass (Michael Manring!) seem wholly written and integrated into the compositions, serving as the perfect setting for an acoustic guitar that shines like a diamond. The melding of third-world rhythms to percussive twelve string guitar is especially notable. This CD is on par with some of the best work Ralph Towner did with Oregon.

There are a handful of solo pieces, and they are delivered with all the subtle authority you'd expect from Gulezian. But the real story here is the teamwork, lack of ego, and absence of showboating. These players are some of the best instrumentalists in existence, a fact made more obvious by the complete absence of gymnastics. There's more than enough energy - this is simply some of the most exquisitely understated music I've ever heard. It's as if the musicians became invisible on this outing, leaving us alone in the ether of pure sound.

Gulezian may be a solo acoustic guitar monster, but here it's much more about beauty, and the collective synergy among master musicians.

Favorite track: "Nothing Is Always Anything." Definitely recommend buying this disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a cool frood Michael is October 22, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been fortunate enough to have caught three of Michael's concerts, and every time it was a warm, glowing experience. His quirky sense of humor and mild, humble attitude makes you love him instantly. And then he plays the living hell out of his guitars. It's hard sometimes to believe there's not another guitarist hiding just offstage, because you wouldn't think so much wonderful music could come off of just one guitar. Obviously, the CD experience isn't as rich, but it's still wonderful guitar playing, whether you're listening just for pure enjoyment or you're a guitarist yourself looking for inspiration. This or any of his albums is a great buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars what a performer, writer, musician... July 27, 2004
By Aaron
Format:Audio CD
I am a student at Northern Illinois University, Michael came to Northern as he does every year and stayed for a few nights. Prior to his comeing a lot of people got excited for his visit. Being a new student to NIU last year i didnt know what evryone was talking about, but when he got here and spent a few days i soon found out why. I went to his concerts and learning sessions on guitar and going solo in the music buisiness; his concerts were one of the best concerts i have ever been too. Watching Michael play his fantastic music is like watching magic. He shares with you every emotion with every note of the song. I recomend this CD to anyone who wants music from a true musician. Excellent!


Michael... P.S.

Cheezecake rocks too man!
