Here’s Part 2 of my posts about Acoustic Guitar Players.
This one is about Norman Savitt
To quote from the Balkan Records Site
“Norman Savitt is a unique acoustic guitarist with a versatility, texture and expression that is distinct and timeless. His debut CD, “Norman Savitt and Friends”, brings Norman together with master musicians Howard Levy, Eugene Friesen, David Amram and Susan Mitchell, in a mix of duo and solo pieces, a “compelling musical mix of happy and meditative tunes, played with enjoyment, imagination and care… full of beautiful sounds and good feelings. ”
Normans guitar playing has a folkish, slight roots sort of feel to it, with a hint every now and then of the great Celtic players, but it has a refreshing newness about it. I’m a fan already only after one day.
