I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Destiny Records artist: Harvey Valdes - Novare: J.S. Bach Lute Works on Electric Guitar - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Novare, from Harvey Valdes and it's quite good. This is a performance of J.S. Bach's Lute Works on electric guitar and  this isn't just any electric guitar but a super hot rod Tesla Classic guitar designed and built by extraordinary German luthier, Ulrich Teuffel. These guitars are built to do things that other guitars can't and Valdes shows how very good they can sound. It's difficult to pick through a classical composition describing nuance and style. The project consists of Lute Suite in C, BWV 997 (which has been arranged in A-Flat Minor);  Prelude, Fugue and Allegro in E-Flat Major, BWV 998 (which has been arranged in D-Flat Major); Prelude In C Minor, BWV 999 (which has been arranged in D-Flat Minor); and Fugue in G Minor, BWV 1000 (which has been arranged in A-Flat Minor). Needless to say, these pieces have been exquisitely composed and now interpreted and executed by Valdes who demonstrates excellent mastery of technique and feel. I'm looking forward to listening to this on my home system to enjoy the purity and ambiance that is recorded on this disc. Very nice.
