Notes & Reviews

    Martin's 2nd CD, again a tour de force for Steel-string guitar. Recorded hot and up close -- a sound as deep as it is bright. Just released - expect a rapid ascent on New-World-Age charts.

"His technique and craftsmanship are excellent, and the pieces are wonderful to listen to."
-- Jim Graves (Free Flight, Fayetteville, NC)

"Martin Posen doesn't so much play a guitar as attack it. His acoustic guitar splutters, guffaws, croons, whistles, and gallops through this, his second, self-released work. The eleven original compositions on this album make use of ten alternate tunings that allow Posen to make specific his angle of harangue for each song. A brilliant kaleidoscope of acoustic notes results from such tactical maneuvering. Each composition is instrumental, with evident influence from country, folk, and bluegrass to jazz (particularly in the chord voicings) and rock (the track 'Django Townshend' drastically demonstrates his eclectic bricolage: the track fuses the distinctive guitar styles of an unlikely pair of monumental figures in music history, Django Reinhardt and Pete Townshend). The result is a catchy pastiche that can be rollicking and fast-paced ('Passing Lane,' 'Sans Souci') or gentle and meandering ('Listening Hands,' 'Oroborous'). This album showcases the subtly textured compositions of one guitar virtuoso."
-- Matt Frassica (Tribune - Montreal, Canada)
