5 stars A guitar only release by master guitar player Ralph Towner.

It is hard not to feel surprised and delighted with "My Foolish Heart", 2017. Its precise and up front beauty resides in many factors starting with its compositions. Eight new original ones, alongside a couple of Towner's OREGON repertoire ("Shard" & "Rewind"), a tribute oriented one to the late Paul Bley ("Blue As In Bley") and a heartfelt cover of Victor Young's "My Foolish Heart".

How refreshing to listen to Jazz rooted guitar compositions which are so creatively crafted, with such an innovative spirit and such an enticing and masterful performance, yet deeply modern in language without the aid of "modern Jazz cliches" nor "Latin" flavors.

Pure and flawless Ralph Towner and as good as he gets!

*****5 PA stars.
