Customer Reviews

a strong statement

from an imaginative guitarist. As Gyan's neighbor I have witnessed first hand the fluidity of his playing, and am very pleased to see it so fully realized in this record. As he passed me the lushly designed record, I took note of the prescence of Zakir Hussain, and as his tabla's trickle in on Progression of the Ancestors it is an appreciated auditory visitation. The layered spacious Herbie Moonshine's Last Dance is a sumptous unwinding piece, reminiscent of an imagined jam twixt Carlos and Carlos (Montoya and Santana). The searing electric tone, sometimes guitar, sometimes violin complement fluid classical runs. This complex album closes with a simple solo piece by Gyan that has not one note too many nor one note too few, a real lullaby to listen to with tea in the rain. It is both complex, warm, inventive, and a necessary addition to the collection of anyone who appreciates the tone of a well played guitar.


Came across this artist on accident browsing a compilation via itunes. I was pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed all of his work on here (of which I downloaded both albums). Nicely done and I would suggest this album to anyone interested in guitar music. ~Ryan (Seattle, WA)
