Glenn Jones is a master of American Primitive Guitar, a style invented in the late
1950s by John Fahey, whose traditional fingerpicking techniques and wide-ranging influences were used to create modern original compositions. Jones, who led
the post-rock ensemble Cul de Sac, brings his own made-up tunings, the use of custom-crafted partial capos, and a highly skilled picking style on both banjo and
guitar, to create personal compositions that are lyrical, emotive and elegant. What
sets him apart from the myriad guitarists playing today is his ability to tell stories
with the guitar and banjo, and to convey a range of emotions. This process starts
with the compositions themselves and carries through to his selection of recording
environment and engineer.
Fleeting was recorded in a house on the banks of the Rancocas Creek in Mount
Holly, New Jersey. Cozy, cluttered with artifacts of a life well-lived (by its owner
Bill Bolger), the house struck the right note for Jones and his recording engineer, Laura Baird. Jones in particular likes spaces with character that are remote from the day-to-day world. Jones and Baird made no attempt to soundproof the recording
environment, happy to let sounds filtering in from the outdoors to become part of
the listening experience.
