Scott Brown's "Sparkle": chiming, encompassing 12-string guitar sounds

I highly recommend my old friend Scott Brown’s debut CD, “Sparkle.” To me, Scott’s songs are like romantic impromptus with some satisfyingly New Age patterns that take happily surprising turns — improvisations at their start, that become meaningful musical journeys. I find them beautiful. The chiming sound of his 12-string guitar is wonderful and encompassing.

Scott sent me three earlier versions of this album’s tunes earlier in the year, and they truly helped me through a tough time, the deaths of two dear friends; his compositions and playing were spiritually nourishing to me. You can listen to snippets of his songs on his new website. (Some quite delightful earlier work here.)
