Pictures and Postcards
price: $15.00 + shipping
This debut album from St. Louis native Vincent Varvel is a collection of instrumental, guitar-driven music ranging in influence from Bill Frisell to Daniel Lanois to Leo Kottke to Pat Metheny. Varvel has been performing for some 20 years, and has spent much of the last 6 years touring the U.S.and Europe with the Peter Mayer Group, lending his brilliant sense of harmony and texture to that band. In addition to Varvel on acoustic and electric guitars, this album features excellent work by bassist and co-producer Jim Mayer, percussionist R Scott Bryan, and drummer Roger Guth. Each piece on the album paints a different instumental landscape for the listener to enjoy.
"...a lot fun, some gentle moments, and even some rousing kick-ass numbers as well. If you're a lover of both acoustic and electric guitar-led instrumental music, you can't miss with Pictures & Postcards."
-Bill Binkelman, Wind and Wire
"A dreamy, swirling, instrumental blend of jazz, folk and rock. With its luscious melodies and smooth rhythm, the album soothes the mind and encourages day dreaming. "
-Sarah Settle, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
