Album Review
Reviewed 2007-09-06
Go around the world in 80 guitars. The “orchestra” is guitar (and other strings) virtuoso Brozman, overdubbing himself on nearly every instrument. He’s spent his life exploring musical cultures and here he pays respectful, yet never stuffy, homage to the music of Hawaii, Mali, Finland, Okinawa, and elsewhere.

1. Slow, tinny intro then a tango w/a Europe meets Hawaiian flair.
*2. Bright, shimmery island bounce w/a light touch. So nice.
*3. Mid/upbeat jazz w/a driving air and a cool plinkiness.
4. Sweet and midtempo w/a hint of cha cha and a touch of France.
*5. Light, swaying calypso music. Pour some rum and enjoy…
6. Midtempo gazal, India w/a touch of the Middle East.
*7. Fast South American folk dance. A total toe-tapper.
8. Midtempo Hawaiian classic w/a relaxed, sunny feel.
9. Influenced by Malian blues, a rhythmic, midtempo strum.
*10. Mid/uptempo ska-ish bounce w/a soundtrack sort of sound.
*11. An upbeat world tour w/stops in Africa, India, and elsewhere.
12. Slow, elegant, spare Asian-inspired lullaby.
