Yes, a double take–beard v. no beard?–when looking for a video link. 🤷‍♂️

On this recording, Moonlight Sonata (Beethoven) is enchanting in electronica ambience reinvention.

From Jazz Times

The guitarist's new compositions filter his concepts through circuits

"Those only familiar with Diego Barber’s Sunnyside Records output might be taken aback by his latest release on the label, Drago. Its largely electronic sounds seem to be a major departure for a virtuoso on the nylon-string guitar in both classical and jazz settings...Pure guitar may rarely appear on the record, but Barber did use his “best weapon” to generate many of the album’s sounds. He would employ a MIDI-equipped guitar to record a MIDI track, later used to trigger a Spectrasonics Omnisphere software synthesizer and Kontakt sample libraries. “That way I can get sounds that are far removed from the actual guitar,” he says. Less often, he recorded his guitar without MIDI and disguised it with effects. For the non-MIDI parts, Barber went direct and just grabbed an amp from Logic’s wealth of modeling options to form a foundation on which he would then build. “The guitar sound was modified many times, so I didn’t spend a lot of time on the basic tone,” he admits. “It was not the most important thing in this recording.”

 

 

This artist is new to me and quite to my liking. It receives approval from overlords of Space & Sound (cats & wife).

I've been looking forward to arrival of this recording in the mailbox. There is a dividing point, according to my wife:  Pat Metheny + Lyle Mays v. Metheny post-Mays.  This has the sonic signature, compositional style–the taste–of Mays with Metheny. I think it is marvelous. And, recorded before an audience, the sonics are impeccable.

"The first-time teaming of Poland’s dynamic Marcin Wasilewski Trio and big-toned US tenorist Joe Lovano brings forth special music of concentrated, deep feeling, in which lyricism and strength seem ideally balanced."
