4 stars Sketches of Satie is a collection of compositions by French impressionist/minimalist composer Erik Satie recorded by Steve Hackett and his flute-playing brother, John. I came about this originally just looking for a collection of Satie recordings, and I noticed Steve Hackett's name on the list and immediately decided to look into it. I'm definitely glad I did, because this music is beautiful through and through. I've never been a fan of minimalist classical music, but definitely one of the earliest and his music is injected with a fantastic dose of impressionism in the vein of Debussy or Ravel. This recording may not do much for progressive rock fans, but classical fans would definitely find this highly enjoyable. After this, I decided to get all of Steve Hackett's classical oriented albums, and none of them are a let down. He truly is a very talented guitarist. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for absolutely captivating ethereal music that could make any grown man cry.
