Contemporary Fusion Reviews

Gracefully renewing guitar magic David Lindsay – HIGH WIND BLUE SKY: The new sweet summer is ever easier to slide into when you have such gracefully renewing guitar magic to accompany you on the journey… I reviewed his 2018 “Last Passing of Summer“, where he got very high marks from these ol’ ears.
As with the earlier release, David put this album together at Will Ackerman’s Imaginary Road studios, where only the best artists are recorded… the accompaniment for his graceful guitar work is just stunning… cello from Eugene Friesen, Jill Haley doing English horn, violin from Charlie Bisharat, percussion from Jeff Haynes and Jeff Oster on flugelhorn… also you’ll hear piano and bass from Tom Eaton (who recorded and engineered the album), mysterious vocals by Noah Wilding and beautiful acoustic guitar leads from Will Ackerman… samples aren’t up yet, but I can tell you that you will feel totally at peace as you listen to the 4:24 “Slow Walk Home”… it’s very visual playing, and will bring back memories of treks you’ve taken, for sure.
The intimate “pacing” on the 4:16 “Dear Friend” will bring visions of those folks you treasure beyond the confines of time… Tom’s piano is slow, sensual and magic on this piece… I really believe this song will be nominated for (and WIN) awards!
