One man. One guitar. Many moods.
Floating Feather Music is pleased to introduce, Many Moods, the fourth solo CD by
Minnesota based finger-style guitarist, Ben Woolman. His latest effort offers the listener
a diverse mix of musical genres ranging from the 1920s through the present century. In
a sense, it is a nod to the history of finger-style guitar as well as an example of
contemporary development of the style. This cosmopolitan collection features 8 original
compositions and 3 arrangements with melodies hinting at the regional influences of:
Latin America, Africa, Ireland, Eastern Europe, and the US, and evoking colors of:
sunshine, sorrow, soul, funky, energy, joy, drama, and hope. Not since his debut CD,
Lost in Density, has there been such a comprehensive representation of his abilities; a
pleasant intermingling of diverse musical influences which in turn showcase his virtuosic
skill and range of musical expression. It is a fine balance between intellect and intuition.
According to Ben, "This project comes the closest to representing the many aspects of
who I am as a player. It is a very personal statement with a splash of academia. Get to
know this music and you will get to know me."
