Kastning, Kevin / Carl Clements: Even this late it happens

Little time seems to go by these days without another release by acoustic guitar innovator Kevin Kastning. This time the Contraguitar specialist teamed up with woodwind specialist Carl Clements, creating the very ethereal Even this late it happens. As with previous releases I have heard the music evolves at a very slow pace as Kastning's complex chord patterns, gently conceived notes and disjointed/angular vignettes set the tone for the individual tracks. The sax and flute is a nice accompaniment, sometimes intricately woven through the guitar textures while otter times tangential to the soundscape. It is all exquisitely played and the artist's knack for improvisation is obviously second to none. I should also add the recording quality is excellent and completely natural sounding and unaltered in any way. My problem with Kastning's work is the lack of discernable hooks for my brain to latch onto. There are many readers who won't find this a problem so I say check out this mellow and dreamlike piece to further satisfy your curiousity. For others like me, certainly listen before you buy and go from there.

Released on greydisc records.
