earBuzz Review:
Eric Roberts plays guitar with a sincerity and emotive technique that rivals the finest players we've heard. He is one of those artists who is able to mix technical ability and place it both within a contemporary melodic setting as well as an airy experimental place that rides the thin edge of jazz and newage. His partnership with cellist, David Darling, is magical - the timbres of both instruments compliment each other perfectly as is witnessed in the long mp3 cut here, "The River Runs". Darling - as compatible a musician creatively as you can want when you compare both musicians' styles - offers chaotic and kinetic lines that travel fairly far away from the typical cellist style and phrasing. Darling's artistic statement, along side Robert's, is compelling and full of life.

Roberts track "Cella's Song" is a melodic and beautiful - it will remind a few players of John Williams touch - especially Deer Hunter soundtrack familiars. "In a Silent Place" has Roberts composition modulating in jazz overtones. We hear Steve Morse like compositional chordal movements without the speed - probably purely unintentional. "Lullaby" brings us tones reminiscent of Hedges' Rickover fun (Rickover's Dream) - but more intimate and less affected. True to what appears to be Roberts' essence, the recordings are done with little reverb or effects - it's bare and beautiful. A touch of a chamber is all you'll hear - and it brings you up close to the performance. .complete with the human rhythm of Roberts' breath. Wonderful. Track 5 on the CD, "Snow" has Eric moving around with quick note flurries and harmonics. .that move into flowing arpeggios to the point that you can almost see the flakes falling from the sky. We love this CD - and Roberts' compassionate playing. Buy it.
