Nick,

  On Qobuz check out;    Fausto Mesolella, his "Live Ad Alcatraz " is wonderful.

 Great guitar.

Thanks, Bill!
Just found him on Qobuz and bookmarked. Sounds great on my iPad....maybe even better tonight on the big rig??  :lol:

A really well recorded album. It is a shame he passed away in 2017. His Live Ad Alcatraz was never made in LP form but his other albums are, or at least two
of them as I had to pick them up as they really are Reference recordings , tubed Neumann microphones, just a lovely warm presentation.

Interesting guitar Nick, thanks for posting this selection. Sounds very nice indeed. So much good music out there.

On the subject of guitarists, here is a selection from Tommy Emmanuel. Music starts about 3 minutes in, for those who just want the music.

This one is about 2 hrs, in St. Louis.

Roon is wonderful software. I was able to find Mirusia, and thru Mirusia I stumbled onto this beautiful song ... “Walking In The Air” ... that I had never heard before. Beautiful melody and lyrics

It is captivating Nick. The sweeping melody and visuals are cool and that very deep bass
"undertow" is just marvelous.

Thanks for sharing.

The whole recording is so wonderful with the players interacting, excellent in virtually all aspects. Just a wonderful recording.

With that in mind, pay close attention to the cello at ~ 5:20 minute mark. I am glad they took the slight mishap with such grace and even humor.

Thanks, Steve. That was beautifully done. As to that mishap, I’ve never it that happen, but he figuratively didn’t miss a beat 👍🎶
