PHRONESIS » Parallax

Another selection for my daily deep listening – Phronesis » Parallax – I’m not sure if words/sentences can really describe music – anyhow this word cloud was made using the words of over thirty reviews of the album – I guess that could give a slight idea about it or not. (…)

“Muthspiel combines a flawless technique honed by classical training with a restless musical imagination as likely to derive inspiration from Bach as from the blues or the Beatles.”

London Times

„Wolfgang Muthspiel is a shining light of the contemporary jazz-guitar generation.”

The New Yorker

“Muthspiel’s tricky compositions (have) an unstoppable groove over which he unveils a solo of Schwarzenegger proportions…These tunes go places, lots of them, and each is more interesting than the last.”

The Village Voice

“A natural virtuoso. On the electric guitar he can produce sounds as light and nimble as a harp’s; on the violin he is alert and steely. Partly composed and partly improvised, his pieces included homages to Stravinsky, his jazz colleague Paul Motian and the Beatles. ”
