Guitar Makossa

John Williams breaks from tradition on this recording, performing an African makossa on classical string guitar.

Recuerdos de la Alhambra

Born in Scotland, David Russell offers a fresh interpretation of one of the most widely-recorded classical guitar pieces from Spain, "Recuerdos de la Alhambra."

You Decide

Once the guitarist for the '70s new wave group, DNA, Arto Lindsay fuses the rhythms and melodies of several cultures to form a stunning and brash sound. This CD will be released on June 25th of 2002.

All the World Is Green

With a career spanning nearly 40 years, Tom Waits straddles the line between the beautiful and grotesque with a rumbling, raspy voice singing tales of loners, losers, hobos and outlaws.

Ghost Story

A great unknown from Dallas, Deadman's debut album is a dreamy blend of alt-country and ambient trip hop.

I Thought
