Mark Fosson's been playing music for nearly 50 years
now. Solo Guitar is the 5th album released under his name
in all that time, which gives an insight into the nature of his
music; when it is time for Mark to commit to something
underneath his fingers, regardless of whether that is after
two years, ten or twenty, that's what's right.
Solo Guitar shares something with kY, as Mark continues to
use his chops and enthusiasm to wander musically, drawing
up pieces of sparkling, nimble fingerstyle with an eclectic
vision. As the title implies, this time Mark is focused on
the austerity of the guitar, plain and simple, to bring out
the music. Whether on six- or twelve-string, his sure touch
is transported by crystal-clear recordings that belie their
down-home origins, as they catch the contours of every
string as it is pressed, bent and struck-a full-bodied sound
projecting soulful dips down into bass strings and shimmering upper register runs with equal power. The air around
these performances is colored with curving waves of steel-
stringed beauty, and the pungency of free-wheeling wit and
