Guitarist/composer Frank Kohl realizes a dream – recording a solo album that allows him to share hot only his great artistry as a musician, but also his sensitive crafts as a composer. He has released six CDs as a leader and player in ensemble recording, but here he sits on stage alone – and the result is superlative music making, in both performance and in compositions.
The songs are composed by Frank Kohl except where indicated – Dreams in Color, I Got It Bad ((Duke Ellington), Imagine This, Solitude, Alone Together (Jerome Kern), A Call For Peace, Fly Way, Still Missing You, City Lights (Oscar Peterson), In Your Arms, My Shining Hour (Harold Arlen, Wide Open, and Once I Loved (AC Jobim).
The songs are beautifully performed and the ambience of the recording is warm and broad, enhancing the beauty of the opportunity to hear the guitar as a solo instrument. This recording is bound to become a popular collectible! Grady Harp, October 20
