With "Sequoia," accomplished string musician Gary Leek gives us an enjoyable acoustic set of original instrumentals that incorporate elements of Celtic, jazz, and bluegrass. There are even some country influences in numbers like "Old Man's Dream"and "Family Tree." Inspired by the giant trees of California, Leek's material takes us on an ethereal journey through nature. While emphasizing guitar, Leek also arranges his songs with mandolin, mandocello, banjo and some keyboard patches that warm up the overall sound. This album offers a nice variety of rhythms and tempos that tickle the aural palate. Leek's notes and phrases make coherent statements, as his musical vision is conveyed with emotional content and character.
Leek uses Taylor 714CE, Martin D1, and Godin ACS guitars. His mandolin is a 1912 Gibson A1, and Leek even uses it for some slide mandolin work on this project. His Amada mandocello was built in Romania. For a banjo, Leek uses a 1930s Leo Master banjo "merely to add color." His keyboard patches, played either directly or through the Godin MIDI guitar, come from a Korg Triton, Yamaha EX5, and Roland XV-3080. Leek uses alternate tunings to develop different moods -- standard tuning, DADGAD, and a dulcimer-like CGDGGD tuning.
From Illinois, Leek began playing guitar at age 10, and studied several kinds of music including jazz. After learning rock, country and bluegrass, he mastered fingerpicking, and played in various bands. A trip to Ireland led to Leek's explorations into Celtic music. His eclectic background and tastes show up as influences in his original music. "Sequoia" is a magical sourjourn by a master who leads us through a stimulating musical journey of life, inspiration, and joy.

Gary Leek's "Sequoia" is a very pleasant collection of original material that will both capture and impress any listener seeking a fresh approach. Leek seamlessly weaves elements of folk, jazz, bluegrass, and Celtic (believe it or not) into compositions that can transport you from the green hills of Ireland to the forests of northern California in a matter of a few measures. If you listen closely, you may detect some whispers of Phil Keaggy's "The Master and The Musician."
All in all, this is a wonderfully intriguing work that belongs in the library of any music lover. Great job, and I look forward to more from this artist!

Gary Leek's Sequoia is a complete and artfully crafted CD of soulful compositions. There is a wide range of sounds in the music, with playful and uplifting bluegrass melodies as in "Really Big Trees", "Grasshopper Dance" and "Cornstalks" to perfectly played finger-picking guitar melodies. Gary Leek's skillful finger-picking is absolutely beautiful, especially in the tunes "Newbee", "Desert Blues" and a favorite being "Don't Leave Now" which has such a delicate melody it provokes heartfelt emotions. I return to this CD over and over again for the exciting sound and refreshing melodies of Gary Leek's Sequoia.

Listening to the Sequoia is a very pleasant experience and brings one closer to the Big Tree. Definitely recommend it.
