Frank Kohl: Solitude








Solo guitarist Frank Kohl delivers an album that is reminiscent of the vintage “Virtuoso” projects by Joe Pass in the 1970. Kohl’s got a rich tone, an ability to use lovely rococo dashes of flavor, and knows how to reinterpret a tune to make it his own, on this mix of standards and originals. He rarely delivers a chop shop of notes, preferring to give introspective and thoughtful reads of the intimate “I Got It Bad” and “Alone Together”. Her serenades a tender read of Tom Jobim’s “Once I Loved” and is relaxed on Oscar  Peterson’s “City Lights”. His own material is reflective, as on the Gaellic “Dreams In Color” and minstrel’d “Fly Way”, with clean picking and attack on “Wide Open”. Pensive pickings.
