Williams, Jimmy: Acquiescence

Former Steel Prophet guitarist Jimmy Williams proves himself to be among the most flexible players in the biz. After recording a balls-out debut of shredding wankery (Guitar Concepts), he released the stylistically diverse Sonic Divergence (produced by keyboards maestro Erik Norlander, no less). Now, here comes Acquiescence, a solo acoustic guitar album featuring a dozen pieces that give nods toward fans of all types of acoustic music: traditional, flamenco, country and even ambient. Typically, Williams' contemplative playing is nearly flawless, and the liner notes explain why he was forced to re-record the entire album in one three-hour session before undergoing hand surgery.

This is "acquiescence" in title only; Williams is a guitar player who clearly bows to no one. Yet his music boasts broad appeal.
