A sampler is a type of compilation album generally offered at a reduced price to showcase a selection of artists signed to a particular record label.
This 1974 album was given a well-deserved boost when ECM reissued it in 2001. It's a solo performance with a twist: Towner plays not only 12-string and classical guitars, but also very competent piano. Only "Entry in a Diary" and "Mon Enfant" are unaccompanied guitar solos; the latter, a traditional melody, is also the sole non-original. On four of the remaining six tracks, Towner accompanies himself via overdubs, playing both guitar and piano for an effect vaguely reminiscent of Bill Evans' Conversations With Myself
Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). I caught on to Towner, Oregon, & the whole ECM label crowd rather late in life: this album was already six years old when I heard Icarus. But if you look for talent & creative ability in musicians, then Towner's your guy, & Diary stands out among the several granddaddies of "world" music.
This Ralph Towner's solo album is recorded as quartet with drummer Jon Christensen, sax player Denney Goodhew and bassist Marc Johnson. Album's opener is usual Ralph just-classic guitar composition, influenced by melancholic Latin folklore. But from second composition Towner goes deeper in minimalistic improvs, with very elegant help of supporting musicians.
