Performer Notes
  • Solo performer: Ralph Towner (12-string & classical guitars).
  • Recorded at Rainbow Studio, Oslo, Norway in March 1996.
  • ANA is Ralph Towner's 17th release for the ECM label, and his first solo guitar recording since 1979's SOLO CONCERT. He continues to transcend the boundaries and conventions of traditional guitar playing; his compositions speak with a quiet intensity that blurs the line between jazz and classical music. Pieces such as "Tale of Saverio" and "I Knew It Was You" highlight the strength and elegance of his classical guitar playing, while showcasing the harmonic and rhythmic depth of his improvisation--a vital component of his work.
  • On "Seven Pieces for Twelve Strings," Towner demonstrates why, arguably, he has no peers on the 12-string guitar. His concept is unique, and he has developed a language of his own on the instrument. "Toru," with its altered tuning, and "Sage Brush Rider," with its cascading flourishes and controlled burn, show an artist who continues to refine a very personal voice and musical vision.
Professional Reviews
