Matt Schofield Far As I Can See

Guitar Techniques - - Music Reviews -


Matt has re­cently re­turned to the UK af­ter a suc­cess­ful tour in the US. His record­ing his­tory is al­ready im­pres­sive, but this lat­est re­lease is ex­cep­tion­ally good, even by his own high stan­dards. The open­ing track, From Far Away sets the mood for the whole al­bum: a se­lec­tion of cool, so­phis­ti­cated and well-pro­duced blues tracks that are burst­ing with ex­cite­ment and tech­ni­cal ex­per­tise. It’s no won­der then that Matt is con­sid­ered to be the best blues gui­tarist to ap­pear from any coun­try in decades, and is con­stantly in­creas­ing his fan base. We love the slick paced Get­away, it’s to­tally brim­ming with de­lights, the funky Hind­sight with its tight horn sec­tion and the Latin flavoured Yel­low Moon. Matt is singing and play­ing at a whole new level; these are great songs and per­for­mances, and there’s not a sin­gle track that doesn’t de­serve to be here. The al­bum is also avail­able as a dou­ble LP for those of you who love vinyl, so play and en­joy!
