Ralph Towner: Solo
Sunday, June 2 @ 7:00 PM
After critically-lauded projects with trumpeter Paolo Fresu and with fellow guitarists Wolfgang Muthspiel and Slava Grigoryan, Ralph Towner returns to solo guitar for My Foolish Heart. Whether on classical guitar or 12-string guitar Towner’s touch is immediately identifiable. Solo music is an important thread through his rich discography and this latest album – recorded at Lugano’s Auditorio Stelio Molo RSI in February 2016 and produced by Manfred Eicher – follows in the great tradition of Diary, Solo Concert, Ana, Anthem, and Time Line. It features finely-honed new compositions as well as a pair of tunes from the songbook of Oregon, a dedication to the late Paul Bley and a single standard – Victor Young’s “My Foolish Heart” – which Towner first came to love from Bill Evans’ interpretation.
