Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Well known and highly regarded singer/songwriter Brooks Williams releases this collection of guitar instrumentals on the GRAMMY winning label Solid Air Records. Williams style is a brilliant mixture of John Fahey and Joseph Spence with a hint of Pat Metheny at moments. This is all solo and acoustic!

Format: Audio CD
On first hearing Guitar Player, I was reminded of the impact that John Fahey's 6 & 12 String Guitar had on me 30 years ago. Guitar Player is a breakthrough recording of acoustic music, and Brooks' finest yet. There are a great variety of tunes: fiddle tunes, contemporary classical, gospel, blues, brazilian, and some rearrangements of Brooks' concert standards, all performed brilliantly. The recording has a presence that permits finger noise, guitar overtones, and even the rain, to confirm that you are listening to live music played by a master.

My favorite tunes so far include Far Away, a contradance waltz written Peter Jung; Aguinaldo Jibara, a traditional tune from Puerto Rico, and The Drowsy Bee, an original. Brooks' chord melody arrangements are are usually understated, occasionally flashy; most often they sound "just right."

If you enjoy beautiful acoustic music played on some of the finest acoustic guitars being built today, you won't regret this purchase.

I read about Brooks Williams on music websites, and started listening to him on Pandora Radio. I absolutely love his music. He is one of those guitarists that you can't quite figure out. He takes on many different musical styles throughout this album and i enjoyed the ride. It sounds So beautiful and clean, and inspires me to pick up my guitar and play. Little lion is also a great album.

Brooks once again throws down the gauntlet with his acoustic playing! Some of the songs weren't as "peppy" as I thought they might be but I'll be playing this album over and over again for a long time to come!
