Elegant Tern

Gentle & intricate, guitar solos with a subtle Celtic flavor. "Listeners who yearn for the Windham Hill days of solo guitar will want to check out this CD -- reflections of Will Ackerman and Alex de Grassi abound," Acoustic Guitar Magazine. Simply lovely.

Album Notes
"I named it as one of my favorite recordings of 2002. The entire album resonates with gentility, emotion, and grace. Clarelynn Rose displays an abundance of technique yet never calls attention to it with showiness or ostentatious fireworks."
--Bill Binkelman, KFAI Radio, Minnesota

"There is just something about the way she plays, ...the way she touches the strings which is strongly feminine. I'm not sure I've ever heard this from any other female artist...This attribute is one of the things which really makes the album stand out... a fresh, original, approach. It runs away from the average acoustic guitar album...conveying a wealth of warm (and) true emotions. "
--Guitar Noise

"Clarelynn's music soars to great heights of technical and emotional excellence. From the drone-like Celtic feel of the title song, with its series of extremely interesting rhythmic variations, to the beautiful sustained harmonics of "Pacific," this is a guitarist's CD that will be equally enjoyable to the non-player as well."

"The equal of any other acoustic guitarist in this field currently recording...Alex de Grassi is an apt comparison," write one Minnesota radio DJ about Rose, from California's redwood country.

Whether you're studying, cooking, reading, or just day-dreaming, this album will support you and be your good friend.

Influences of the natural world are evident in tracks like Sunshower and the graceful title track, Elegant Tern. Rose's Buddhist roots shine in the Song of Putuo Mountain and the pensive Sound of Thunderclouds.

Beautiful and Touching
I've been listening to this album for a while, and I never grow tired of the gentle and heartfelt melodies. It's perfect both for winding down to, and for helping you focus. The music continues to be unobtrusive while still providing a soothing atmosphere, and because of this I often listen to this album while writing. Whether you listen attentively or let yourself absorb the tunes while you're doing other things, I'd highly recommend this album.
