Towner, Ralph - Solstice CD

SKU 28-ECM1060
For over 35 years, Ralph Towner has been 'the man' on acoustic 6 and 12 string guitars, his music displaying a deep, deep beauty, but never becoming too sweet. This features an ECM all-star band: Ralph Towner-12 string and classical guitars, piano, Jan Garbarek-tenor and soprano saxes, flute, Eberhard Weber-bass, cello, Jon Christensen-drums, percussion. There was an amazingly high number of great albums being released on ECM during the 1970s and this is one of many beautiful, enjoyable, stupendously recorded classics.

"Solstice is one of Ralph Towner's greatest records. Solstice took his compositions and arrangements to a new level. Working with Christensen, Garbarek and Weber allowed Towner to create a mood that makes the experience of listening to Solstice truly dramatic. It's a very good sounding recording that shows off Towner's unique 12-string and gut-string guitar styles. Ralph Towner is one of the greatest exemplars of contemporary music that is lumped into jazz but transcends categorization."-D. Levy/All Music Guide
