Heaven Week: Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring

Leo Kottke: Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring


I think this may be the biggest genre breaking post we've had yet, and for that I apologize. Skip it if you'd like, but this is good music and so I think it fits on a blog about good music. I've seen Leo Kottke perform many times. As you probably know, he plays folk, blues, and lot's of other styles, but no matter what the style, his signature is the beautiful way he has of making a guitar open up and speak. He knows his instrument, and watching him play in close proximity is inspirational because he seems to play with so little effort.

If you want to relax on a Sunday morning, this entire album is worth owning. It's not all in the classical genre - but it's all finger-picked guitar-only music.
