Nobody But the Moon & Me
Press: from: The Los Angeles Jazz Scene 'Nobody But The Moon And Me is quite a bit different. This set of solo guitar music has aspects of swing, blues and vintage country music but it is comprised exclusively of Ferguson's original songs...a close listen reveals sophisticated chords, logical melodic development, and high musicianship. Craig Ferguson makes everything sound easy, but one should not be fooled into thinking that it really is!' --- Scott Yanow ____________________________________________________________________________ A collection of 12 works composed strictly for solo guitar, Craig Ferguson's debut album 'Nobody But The Moon And Me' is a statement of simplicity. Composed with nothing but a pencil and paper and recorded live with no overdubs, these instrumental tracks are the result of a broad range of influences. From styles like jazz, blues, and country to guitarists such as Bill Frisell, John Fahey, and Joe Pass Craig brings it all together on 'Nobody But The Moon And Me'. Standout tracks include, 'Good Luck For Hard Times', 'Soul Patch', and 'Walkin' The Dog'. Highly recommended if you're a fan of peaceful solo guitar music.
