Condition: Used: Good
Comment: FINE FORMER LIBRARY COPY with label on insert but otherwise in NICE condition with everything (original case, disc, and insert) in very good condition, especially disc which is in near like-new condition; General notes on our DISC MEDIA sold in Used-Good condition: The item should play perfectly, but it may have identifying marks from its owner, and there may be flaws in one or more areas (e.g.: hairline crack on an otherwise solid and functioning jewel case). Condition judgments are made on an overall basis (for instance, a disc in Like-New condition may be in a cracked jewel case and thus be listed as “Used-Good†or “Used-Very Goodâ€). NOTES ON ALL DISC MEDIA WE LIST: We cannot and do not test-play our disc media before listing it. It is not reasonably possible for us to do so. Therefore, there is always the risk, albeit unlikely, that the item will not function/play properly or even at all. If the item is a piece of software, we cannot possibly be absolutely certain that any needed access codes are present and still valid. We cannot guarantee compatibility with your machine, only that the item we sell is listed on the correct product detail page in the Amazon catalog. Yet, Amazon provides excellent customer service on our behalf for each and every one of our orders; so, if you do run into a problem (however unlikely), you can know that you will be served very well as a customer. If you choose to buy from us, you accept you accept reasonable risks (e.g. that you may have to return an item for a refund). ATTEMPTED THEFT: We investigate suspected theft and involve Amazon in the process.

Product Description

On Sylvain Luc's fifth recording titled "Joko," the critically acclaimed French guitarist makes a bold departure from his previous solo and trio recordings to perform with a dynamic new group featuring French avant-garde legend Michel Portal on clarinet and young French piano favorite Jacky Terrasson. Rounding out this unique ensemble are Pascal Rey on drums and percussion, Eric Longsworth on cello, Olivier Ker-Ourio on harmonica, and Iranian brothers Keyvan and Bijan Chenirani on daf, zarb, bendir and udu.

"Joko" gives fans a taste of Luc's elegant chord voicings on 15 great songs. Listeners are treated to his lyrical acoustic guitar lines, effortless grooves and the ethereal chord textures of Joe Jackson's "Steppin' Out," the clean, round sounds of Keith Jarrett's "Coral," the mesmerizing nuance of Paul McCartney's "This Never Happened Before" (from his recent hit Chaos and Creation in the Backyard), and the eclecticism of "Fandanguito," a Luc original.

The guitar tuning Luc uses is an outgrowth of his traditional Basque decent. Much like his good friend Bireli Lagrene, Sylvain Luc was a child prodigy from a family of traditional gypsy musicians and has grown into an amazing technician, combining a total command of the jazz guitar tradition with a deep love and understanding of world music, including that of his own Basque heritage. When you talk about crossing his sound over into jazz, he is really relentless and is making that happen beautifully through the use of multiple guitars, overdubbed bass lines, and percussive taps on the guitar body. The diversity of the recording will hold your interest from start to finish with its stirring combination of standards and original material.

Review

"A phenomenal technician with a very fertile imagination and an assured sense of swing." -- Jazz Times Magazine
