Lee Westwood, |
To Sleep: Farewell Songs
Lee Westwood is based in Brighton, England, and is a wonderful guitar player. He cites influences ranging through jazz, classical and folk music.
The dozen tracks offered on To Sleep: Farewell Songs give the listener a fine overview of these influences and Westwood's interpretations of them.
It may not be an album that jumps out at you, unless you are a great fan of good guitar music and composition for that instrument, but the tracks -- including "To Sleep," "The Juggler" and "Music for Children" -- are worthy of more than a cursory listen.
The accompanying booklet contains commissioned art work allied to the tracks and can be used to heighten the appreciation of Westwood's work.
