Improvijazzation Nation  Review of Nightbound

David Lindsay – NIGHTBOUND:  Yet another beautiful release recorded in Will Ackerman’s Imaginary Road studios, featuring some of the prettiest guitar work I’ve ever heard from David!  You’ll find pieces like the 4:01 “A Boy and a River” most refreshing and inspiring, I can guarantee it! You won’t find any scorching Sonny Sharrock-like riffs.  You will hear the sounds of a soul at peace, especially on tunes like the stunning title track, “Nightbound“… David’s pacing is sheer perfection, with no rushes to judgement, and plenty of open spaces/notes for the listener to fill in with their own dreams.  Even the shorter songs are fully packed with life, as you’ll hear on the 2:47 “Dreamwalk“… you’ll definitely be hitting the “replay” several times on this one.

Of the thirteen sonic adventures offered up, it is “Unspoken” that got my vote for personal favorite… highly impressive music that will inspire you to the depths of your soul.  I give David (as well as his guests, like Eugene Friesen, Tony Levin and Will Ackerman, just to name a few) a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98.  Get more information on David’s website (& of course, tell him that you read about this release here).          Rotcod Zzaj

 

Another thumbs up for Nightbound!
