Cole Porter

Wolfgang Muthspiel: Angular Blues

Read "Angular Blues" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

So much of Austrian guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel's music materializes before you like Mr. Spock and company on Star Trek. The music beamed in always airy and on the verge of evaporation. But before it does either manifest or vanish it leads you along a slippery slope, through brave structures where only the guitarist knows where the ...

Come recita il sottotitolo del disco, questa “distorsione temporale nella musica di Cole Porter" è una delle riletture più eccentriche. I leader sono ...
