Great to see this wonderful debut album from Canadian guitarist Adam Cicchillitti on the amazing Canadian label Analekta. Cicchillitti has been super active over the past couple of years, making a big splash on the guitar scene. Also note, recording engineer, editing, mixing, mastering by Drew Henderson. Here’s a blurb from the album notes, “Few national music styles are as connected with one instrument as is Spain with the guitar. The instrument seems to contain the colours, the very spirit of the various and diverse regions of the country within its wooden casing. This album, entitled Canciones, also demonstrates most eloquently that many Spanish composers seem to have had an innate way with the profoundly intriguing possibilities of the instrument.” Also check these write-ups on the album via First Listen CBC, Review on Great Dark Wonder.
