Master guitar flat-picker BEPPE GAMBETTA is back with an album of recordings that play like a love letter to America's musical heritage and his appreciation for it.
From his beautiful and original interpretation of "You Are My Sunshine" to the breakneck "Chipmunk" and all of the tempos and moods in between, "The American Album" is certainly a benchmark CD for this most accomplished of musicians.
With the opening moments of "Acadian Dream" all the way through the closing "You Are My Sunshine," Gambetta's new release (Gadfly #518 -- his fifth for Gadfly Records), exudes both amazing dexterity, deftness of touch and true love for the American acoustic guitar genre. Over his long career, Gambetta has made a practice of teaming up with the best complementary players he can find on the planet – from Tony Trischka to Doc Watson to Patty Larkin to Dan Crary to Mike Marshall – but on this new release it's all Gambetta, doubling himself on both guitar and vocals.
Look for tour dates Fall 2013 and Winter 2014 (see www.beppegambetta.com for details).
