Strunz & Farah Moods And Visi ons

Guitar Techniques - - Music Reviews -

Strunz & Farah’s 20th al­bum marks 35 years of the Grammy-nom­i­nated duo’s suc­cess­ful col­lab­o­ra­tion, and it fea­tures the cel­e­brated acous­tic gui­tar duo plus bass gui­tar, flute and Latin/East­ern per­cus­sion. The re­sult is an in­ti­mate record­ing that show­cases the duo’s su­perb com­po­si­tional skills, as well as their for­mi­da­ble yet lyri­cal tech­niques. The al­bum is con­sis­tently good, boast­ing nine in­stru­men­tals, but if we had to pick four favourites we’d set­tle for the opener Four Winds, the nos­tal­gic Museo Ro­man­tico, a haunt­ing num­ber called Green Mists that wouldn’t sound out of place on a film sound­track, and the Per­sian in­flu­enced Tavoos ( The Pea­cock). All in all it’s an­other fine al­bum from Strunz & Farah and an es­sen­tial lis­ten for all acous­tic gui­tar afi­ciona­dos. Moods And Vi­sions is avail­able di­rectly from www. strun­zand­ which ac­cepts PayPal and also hosts a sam­pler track from the al­bum. Give it a lis­ten!
