Varied sound, very satisfying!

This is the third CD available from Manx, and it is a bit different from the others in that he is playing as a duo with fellow Canadian guitarist Kevin Breit. The resulting sound is more full and eclectic. Instead of sultry raga blues we have a more American flavoured blues jazz folk sound. The two met in 2001 at the Summerfolk festival in Ontario and played a killer set sight unseen. They teamed up again in 2002 for this live in studio recording, again without rehearsals or planning. The results are outstanding! Their opposite styles (cool and spunky) compliment beautifully. Manx plays mostly acoustic instruments; slide guitar, Mohan Veena, National Steel guitar, harmonica and banjo as well as his warm vocals, while Kevin plays an assortment of electric and acoustic instruments; guitars and bass, resonator guitar, banjo, mandocello, banjolin, mandolin, mandola, organ, bass pedals, guitorgan....you get the picture!
The song selection is a nice mix of originals and covers (Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues is a pleasant surprise). Production and packaging is excellent as well. I love the informative and beautifully done liner notes, clearly a labor of love.
This CD has grown on me (while Manx's other recordings were instant hits with me), and I like the variety and accessibilty. Thanks guys for sharing the magic!
