UNREPENTANT GROOVES, RATTLING BLUES AND SUBTLE MINIATURES Silk's Groove, the new release from Dennis Bolten, is an adventurous blend of fingerstyle guitar, banjo, dobro and ukulele. 'It's a fresh mix of styles and instruments,' Dennis Bolten comments on his new release. 'The ukulele pieces were adapted from fingerstyle guitar compositions that I reduced to miniatures to help pace the CD. The first banjo track, Rattlebones, is a blues piece while the second, Mementos, was influenced by French street music. The guitar tracks range from the subtlety of Ascension to the groove driven Thigh High to the rattling blues of Hammerhead.' Reviewers described his 2001 release, Slipstream, as 'fresh', 'playful' and a 'showcase'. Silk's Groove builds on the playful titles and versatility that set Slipstream apart, mixing unrepentant grooves, rattling blues and romantic miniatures.
