Editorial Reviews

Product Description

"Renaissance.." is Dan Crary's celebration of the beautiful diversity and international reach of the acoustic guitar. This virtuoso concert includes original signature pieces, plus blues, a touch of country, versions of Puccini, Kreisler, and Brahms, and Irish Celtic tunes. John Cephas, Joel Mabus, Sam Bush, and Beppe Gambetta are guests.

Review

Dan Crary... he's a virtuoso who likes to go it alone. He doesn't mind, however, multi-tracking guitar parts to create a rich, full sound on Renaissance of the Steel String Guitar. If it seems a bit gutsy to name your own album "Renaissance" anything, Crary justifies the use of the term within his first two compositions. Both "Senso Unico" and "In Flagrante" begin with fairly simple guitar parts, first on one track, then on the other, and quickly build like carefully constructed suites. The word "suite," however, shouldn't lead one to think Crary's fretwork is overly formal. The real fun of Renaissance is the vitality he is able to extract from carefully arranged pieces like "Banderilla" and "Lobelia Blue," guaranteeing that his music will never be mistaken for easy listening. There are numerous guest appearances by Beppe Gambetta, Sam Bush, and Billy Oskay. Crary's extensive liner notes on the rich history of the guitar reveal that besides being a great guitarist, he's also pretty darn smart. Renaissance of the Steel String Guitar will be greeted by guitar enthusiasts with open ears. --Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr., All Music Guide

This album has not only kept up with the mastery of the guitar that Dan Crary is known for, I think it has surpassed it. This is one of the most beautiful albums I've ever heard--eclectic, historical, and progressive all at once. The guy is simply one of the best in the world and in this CD he is not only successful in his attempt to revive or have a "Renaissance of the Steel String Guitar," he also provides one of the most interesting inserts about the history of the guitar in America that I've ever come across. Buy this CD, you'll play it over and over again.

I bought this Dan Crary CD without hearing any of it based on "Guitar," which is the finest instrumental bluegrass CD I've heard (thanks not only to Dan Crary's playing but the all-star cast: Mark O'Connor, Bela Fleck, Sam Bush, et. al.). "Renaissance," completely instrumental also, has no bluegrass, although there's one tune ("Hot Pursuit") that's kind of a like a a bluegrass tune turned on its head. There's a lot of Spanish-inspired work here, plus some blues, swing, and takes on classical themes. Irish tunes also work their way into the lineup. Melodies, harmonies, and interplay between Dan's guitar and other supporting instrumentalists (on violin, mandolin, piano, harmonica, etc.) are strong throughout. Dan's flat-picking is inspired. Most tunes are Dan Crary compositions. I have to force myself not to listen too much to this CD.

I have long been a follower of this type of music. I play it often whilst on longer trips so I don't have to listen to the radio.
