Info for Barefoot Man: Sanpaku

Jazz guitar icon Larry Coryell, one of the most respected and celebrated guitarists of his generation, offers this brand new album of seven original compositions!

"The Coryell patriarch recorded Barefoot Man: Sanpaku in his current home state of Florida, backed by a mix of longtime associates and local players. The album's seven tracks – all instrumental – have a live-in-the-studio feel. The varied set is nominally a jazz collection, but within that framework, it's quite varied: “Sanpaku” is a funky outing with plenty of musician interplay, while “Back to Russia” is built around the piano work of Lynne Arriale. The ensemble nature of the record continues through “If Miles Were Here,” which manages to be melodic and amelodic all at once; it feels the most like Coryell's 1970s work. Coryell's ability to switch on a dime between fast and slow guitar figures is on display on “Improv on 97.” His acoustic work is featured prominently on “Penultimate,” while “Menteca” has a kinetic Carribean jazz flavor; it provides a tasty backdrop for Coryell to spit out some distorted, fleet-fingered electric runs. The disc closes with the wonderfully old-school flavored “Blue Your Mind,” the most traditionally-oriented track on the album."
