John Wheatcroft

En­sEm­blE Fu­tur

Guitar Techniques - - MUSIC REVIEWS -


We go out of our way to pro­vide the best tu­ition in all gen­res of play­ing and it’s a treat when one of our top con­trib­u­tors brings out an al­bum that takes them out of the class­room and into the real mu­si­cal world. This re­lease from John Wheatcroft is a case in point, and is with­out doubt a peach of an al­bum. His ex­per­tise in Gypsy jazz is un­ques­tion­able and here we find him within a group of play­ers pro­duc­ing some of the best around. A lib­eral mix­ture of stan­dards and orig­i­nals th­ese 13 tracks are the per­fect way to ap­pre­ci­ate John’s flu­id­ity and speed across the fret­board in one of the trick­i­est gen­res around. Check out his ver­sions of Django’s Swing 48 and Mi­nor Swing - pure magic! An­tiq­uity stretches the imag­i­na­tion nicely and I Re­mem­ber Par­ris is a beau­ti­ful ro­man­tic piece. Var­ied and beau­ti­ful this al­bum re­ally is a de­light to the ears, comes highly rec­om­mended and is avail­able to down­load from iTunes and Ama­zon now.
