I for one will only be too pleased to lay ears on it
“For those who aren’t aware of the simple beauty of the solo classical guitar, after 50 minutes with Scott, you will be. The fingers are busy and crafty. Joaquin Rodrigo’s ‘Invocation y Danza’ proves this point in elegant fashion; a spry 8 minutes as only the Spanish guitar can claim.

One of the most courtly sets on this release must be the re-acquaintance with Paganini’s Sonatas that take up the bulk of the track list, though they are the short and sweet airs that leave room for other delights, though not greater ones. A bouncy touch is given to these quaint exercises in romantic notions without becoming freestyle or obsessed with ornamentation. Morris knows enough to let the music speak, being himself a first class translator.

Andrew York’s collection of ‘Reflections’ is like the sunset of the album. Thinking is wonderfully underscored with this trilogy of softies, an almost new age skimming off of the harsher elements. What we are left with is one man and his guitar, and the deserted country fields that stretch.

Scott’s next cd will be works from the 19th century and I for one will only be too pleased to lay ears on it.”
