Acoustic Guitar


John Miller, long an acoustic guitar cult hero, has partnered with fiddler Ruthie Dornfeld on this wide-ranging collection of duets that include many of his own compositions. Miller's fingerstyle playing is unique, and his musical ideas are eclectic. On Latin numbers, like the Brazilian choro "Cheguei", the fiddle soars over his wonderfully percussive groove. On slower numbers such as the hauntingly lovely "Sicilienne", his guitar work is sparser and more melodic, almost classical in feel. For some beautiful tunes and fine playing, give this disc a listen.
