MUSIC REVIEW BY John Sunier, Audiophile Audition

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Port Sad Street is in Marseilles, France, and is the title of one of the ten tunes here, composed in this case by guitarist Coletta. The Godin electroacoustic guitar is played by performers looking for an amplified nylon string guitar that can be used both live and in the studio - it has a USB output. The guitar's maple top is closer to a hardbody electric guitar than a typical acoustic guitar. I once recorded a guitar and cello duo, and the sound combination is a lovely one. Tauber has a fine swing to his style, which fits perfectly with the jazz guitar of Coletta. The cello sound reminded me of Fred Katz' work in the Chico Hamilton Quintet of many years ago. While the tunes are mostly by Coletta, there are also entries from Ellington, Horace Silver and Johnny Green. The CD was recorded in Switzerland. A delightful sound. Don't be misled by the album title - there's no influence of Arabic music here. (Not that there's anything wrong with that, mind you.)
