Acoustic Mechanic by Kent Welton, a skilled classical guitarist, has brought you his talents on this CD in the form of songs that feature much more than guitar. Kent\'s impressive guitar work certainly stands on it\'s own on this CD. In addition the CD features passionate strings, airy synths, and wonderful piano work. The beautiful arrangements very effective meld various acoustic instruments, to provide each song a subtle life of it\'s own. \"Night in Seville\" leads off the album and sets the tone with a beautifully arranged and executed guitar piece. \"\"Morning Chamber\" is a wonderful string arrangement and is undoubtedly an anthem to the beauty of a new day. \"A Flutish Fancy,\" starts with a dark intensity and blooms into a fantasy-like movement. If you enjoy classical and new age music, you\'ll enjoy this CD.-
