WINNIPEG guitarist Keith Price, more often seen wielding an electric guitar onstage, performs 11 acoustic tunes on his new solo CD.
And as any good Winnipegger should, he admits a debt to Lenny Breau’s style and covers Neil Young’s Old Man.
Price has proven himself as an electric jazz player on mainstream and more avant garde material.
Now, he demonstrates more delicate and laid-back chops on his own compositions and covers of Radiohead, The Weakerthans and Bob Dylan.
Price has a deft, soft touch on acoustic guitar honed, in part, from years of playing for hospital and CancerCare patients.
While it is not jazz, per se, Price’s jazz sensibilities permeate the disc. It’s a craftsman’s recording 4 stars
