Palm-isTry Pol­skie Ra­dio ✪✪✪✪✪

Pol­ish acous­tic gui­tarist Palma is a stunning tech­ni­cian, but with bags of feel, hu­mour and class. PalmIstry is packed with su­perb orig­i­nals and cov­ers, in­clud­ing Django’s Nuages (awe­some Rein­hardt­meets-Di Me­ola pick­ing) and a Jimi med­ley of Lit­tle Wing, Hey Joe and The Wind Cries Mary (full of bluesy Hen­drixisms). James Tay­lor on steroids opener Healthy Op­ti­mism eases you nicely into what’s com­ing – the pick­ing-tastic More Than Life At Stake. Un­like some solo acous­tic play­ers Palma’s tunes don’t go on and on – most tracks are two to three min­utes but of­fer such a range of tech­niques and melodies that he leaves you want­ing more. Ken­tucky Min­ers is a Chet/Tommy-style work­out that can’t fail to put a grin on the face. It’s stunning all round, but if you need fur­ther con­vinc­ing Mr Em­manuel him­self says, “Full of fresh ideas, grooves, and sparkling gui­tar play­ing – GET IT!!!”
