ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Phillip Lester's fingerstyle guitar playing is a blend of both classical and contemporary music. His compositions incorporate music of many traditions and styles including Folk, Spanish, Classical, Celtic, Oriental, Jazz, and New Age. Having studied with classical guitarist Christopher Parkening, and acoustic guitarist, Alex De Grassi, Phillip brings an orchestral approach to his solo guitar style.

"Lester's imagination researches all the shades of coloring the acoustic guitar has to offer.Lester demonstrates endless feeling and compassion in his music."
--Barbara Morash: Record Reviews New England Performer Magazine

" ...a very fine solo guitarist. His approach to the guitar is both sensitive and intelligent. He is a talented arranger with a gift for musicianship."
--Christopher Parkening

Creating melodic landscapes on nylon and steel string acoustic guitar, his solo guitar compositions are characterized by comforting gentle melodies. The influence of Alex deGrassi, Earl Klugh, and George Winston may be heard in his solo acoustic guitar compositions. His recordings have been featured on radio stations from Portland, Oregon to Boston, Massachusetts. He is presently residing in northern New Jersey and performing throughout the NJ/NY/CT area.

A Christmas tradition
I bought my first copy of this CD in 1997. This year I bought 5 more -- gifts for new friends, new family.

When mid-December comes, we bring the tree up from the cellar, the ornaments from the closet, the Christmas CDs from the drawers -- Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, Phillip Lester. Yes -- it is that good.


a definite part of my holiday music collection
I had the pleasure of attending a Christmas party a couple of years ago where Phillip Lester was actually the musician providing holiday music. His Carols of the Nativity CD was one of the door prizes that night and I kept trading my gifts until I went home with a copy of the CD! His renditions of Christmas classics are what the holidays are all about.
