Best of 2010 Part 3
This is something of a sentimental choice for today I want to highlight, guitar player, Jack Rose. He passed away in Dec 2009 at the age of 38 from a heart attack at the age of 38. As I think about it more, his sad ending is why I thought of this record but it more than stands on its own for the music.
This is a superb disc of instrumental acoustic guitar. Drawing upon the roots of blues and folk and early bluegrass and brought into today this is one of those escape to a desert island discs. Without the need for a passport. Beautiful from beginning to end. This is a classic
