ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Guitarist/Vocalists, Brian Morris's programs of classical guitar, jazz, blues, original and folk songs have received enthusiastic approval from music scholars and elementary school children alike. His past performances include performances with the West Shore Symphony, at Notre Dame University, The Biltmore International Art Expo in Asheville, NC, the College Music Society's Regional Conference in Madison, WI and the Kennedy Center. He is currently on the music faculty of Grand Rapids Community College, where he teaches guitar and other music courses. Earning music degrees from both Florida State University and Montana State University, Brian's past teachers include Christopher Parkening and Bruce Holzman. He has participated in masterclasses with Manuel Barrueco, David Russell and Michael Lorimer. He is the author of The Real Guitar Method and has recorded two CD's, Are We All the Same Age?, a CD of original songs for Shakti Recordings and Ballet Burlesque, a CD of music for two guitars for Liscio Recordings. His newest recording is entitled Suite Music for the Classical Guitar.

From 1985-89 Brian was an Artist-in- Residence for the State of North Carolina where he maintained a very active performing schedule. He was also a member of the Les Deux Amis Guitar Duo with his good friend Joseph Hoey. In 1985 they won third prize in the Guitar Foundation of America's International Guitar Duo Competition, and released a CD of music for two guitars in 1989. After hearing the CD, Francis Kleynjans, the noted Belgian composer whose composition is included on the recording, promptly wrote and dedicated a new work to the duo.

Brian began his musical studies with the organ and cornet at the age of 8, although his fascination with the guitar did not start until age 13 when he began playing folk, rock and blues. Deciding to pursue a degree in music, he attended Grand Rapids Junior College where he studied classical guitar. After two years of study, he was one of 10 guitar students accepted to be in Christopher Parkening's guitar studio at Montana State Unversity, where he earned a BME in 1979. Returning to Grand Rapids, Brian
taught and performed in the area, while continuing his studies in guitar master classes and with prominent local musicians. In 1981 he became the first guitarist to ever be selected to perform at the Kalamazoo Bach Festival's Young Artist Concert. After which he was invited to teach at Kalamazoo College. Receiving a Graduate Fellowship from
Florida State University, Brian returned to school and completed his MM in 1985.

Listening to this cd takes me back to a place where my heart was 3 times bigger and I felt love and gratitude that was unknown to me. Thank you Brian for capturing that moment with your music!

The best work can be found on the actual CD! Purchased with no regret!
I rated three stars but there is considerable material that deserves the top of any scale! Hint! You have to buy to hear what he does best!
