Album Review
Red West
Reviewed 2009-04-22
Acoustic (& electric with no effects) guitar instrumentals, duets or solo. Often sounds like songs with the high strings doing the singing, low strings accompanying. Clean tone, spotless production. Mellow instrumentals, folk-jazz fusion? light jazzy? NPR friendly. Musicians are from Canada & Kansas, the latter having launched his career successfully on YouTube.

1.happy day off. Unfortunate backing synths here and there low in the mix.
+2.thoughtful. uses harmonics around a minute from end
+3.pretty and a little oblique. quiet
4.Happy go lucky start and end, pensive middle
+5.A little wistful. Shortest track on CD
6.Fast, minor key, traveling song
++7.Complex fingerwork, lyrical music
8.Quiet with slaps, jazz harmonics. Long, good for mellow voiceover break
+9.Pretty, low energy, mid-slow, short
10.mid slow, interesting intro then gets lite-jazzy. Picks up halfway with hint of flamenco.
11.Ends the record happily, has some interesting modulation
