Altiplanos by Pierre Bensusan

Revered French, finger-style acoustic guitarist Pierre Bensusan’s latest endeavor features collaborations with various artists performing on keyboards, bass, Djembe and flute. And on several tracks, Bensusan goes it alone. Hence, a nicely crafted mix, indeed.

The guitarist’s supple lines and delicately flowing musical pastiches offer asymmetrical parts; innocence and optimism. And his lyrically rich themes are augmented by a robust tone, to complement his whispery vocalizations. Elsewhere, Bensusan and associates conjure up a world music type vibe, amid jazzy motifs and dream-laden balladry. In addition, Bensusan intermingles subtle intricacies with near-effortless execution via a mélange of heartening chord voicings and resonating single note lines. (Exuberantly recommended.... )
