Image result for ralph towner anthem


A new solo album from one of the great masters of the acoustic guitar.

Ralph Towner has appeared in many contexts for ECM since 1972, but it is perhaps his outstanding solo recitals which most clearly emphasise both his improvisational brilliance and his finely-wrought compositional sense.

The dictionary defines an anthem as a solemn song of praise; there are several on this disc. Most are written by Towner himself and played with the 'almost oriental sense of balance and dignity' that the New York Times long ago singled out as hallmarks of Ralph's work, but the repertoire here also includes Charles Mingus's solemn song of praise in memory of Lester Young, 'Goodbye, Pork Pie Hat' as well as 'Gloria's Step', written by the late Scott LaFaro.

A convincing case can be made that Ralph Towner is at his finest in a solo setting at anniversary time. For his 25th year on ECM, he took his solo guitar playing on the album Ana to a rarefied level of artistry. For this year’s tercentennial he returns to the solstice with yet another solo effort displaying his outstandingly keen sensitivity to the musical expression of attitude and emotion. ... Towner’s aesthetic depends, in part, on careful use of open space and dynamics, tonal colours and generating dramatic tension that sometimes doesn’t find resolution. About all of Towner’s music, born of classical studies and his affinity for jazz and Brazilian music, works on the imagination of the listener. ... Towner is so awesome in his fluency and so expert in his phrasing that his difficult music sounds deceptively easy to play. One might think several musicians are present for how he simultaneously creates melody, chords, bass and percussion parts.
Frank-John Hadley, DownBeat

The guitarist Ralph Towner is a master of many disciplines and has fashioned an album of quiet brilliance in the form of Anthem. The songs here are obviously composed yet plainly suffused with improvisation – Towner begins with basic melodic structures and then lets his fingers fly, ornamenting the intervals with subtle flourishes, sustain and delicate harmonics. He understands the value of silence, too: the spaces between the notes – just listen to Solitary Woman and Anthem itself. Towner has brought together a collection of deeply felt narratives expressed unaccompanied on classical and 12-string guitars. ... A veteran of many styles of music-making and famous for his work with Gil Evans, Keith Jarrett and Jan Garbarek, Towner is still so versatile at 60 that he often sounds like three or four musicians playing simultaneously. This is an astonishing record. His best yet.
Mike Bradley, The Times

Operating somewhere between contemporary classical and jazz, ... Towner occupies a unique niche in jazz. Known for his carneo on Weather Report’s 1972 album I Sing The Body Electric and work with the classical crossover group Oregon and countless ECM luminaries, he is perhaps best loved for his solo recitals, of which Anthem is the latest – and it’s a gem. There’s a pair of jazz standards, but the majority of the mesmerising set comprises original 12-string and classical guitar pieces, aching, ruminative sketches and developed compositions of such emotional vividness and musical detail that they hardly seem to be the work of one man. The music tugs at the listener’s attention and, with breathtaking balance and control, is always compelling. The acoustic guitar has never sounded better, and neither has this amazing guitar player.
Chris Ingham, Mojo
