The Master & The Musician
The Story
"The Master & The Musician" was a landmark project for guitarist Phil Keaggy, his first of many instrumental recordings. Consisting of a blend of subtle acoustic and electric guitar pieces, the CD offers some beautiful music with Keaggy's talents on guitar adding the elements of surprise, expressiveness and gripping drama. "The Master & The Musician" highlights include "Agora (The Marketplace)", "Suite-Of Reflections" and "Follow Me Up" and the music is an excellent introduction to Keaggy's style as it evolved in the late '70s.
