Norman Savitt Debuts His Originals On Solo Guitar and Duos With Good Friends
By Carla Marie Rupp
I recently met Norman Savitt at a concert in Brooklyn when he offered me his CD to listen to. I was pleasantly surprised by the music and the depth of playing-- and the high quality of accompanists and production.
Norman has assembled quite an impressive crew here, and after listening to it, I offered to write him some liner notes. I mainly write about jazz, and I find myself drawn to Normanâs style and vision. He calls himself âa primitive guitar player.â He is thatâand much more.
I like Normanâs compelling music: itâs a mix of happy and meditative tunes, played with enjoyment, imagination and care, and we are really lucky to hear Norman featured on guitar, along with a handful of his talented friends. These are all friends who graciously offered to play on this CD, and itâs full of beautiful sounds and good feelings. There are 15 unique, original finger-style guitar pieces, some lovely, intimate duos and some played solo. Besides the intriguing music with Norman alone, youâll be treated to guest appearances on four tunes by Grammy Award-winning harmonica player Howard Levy (Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Paquito dâRivera), on two tunes by Grammy Award-winning cellist Eugene Friesen, (Paul Winter Consort). The legendary David Amram joins Norman on pennywhistle on two tracks. Talented violinist Susan Mitchell appears on one tune, and her appearance gives homage to Normanâs gigs with her over the years. And of course, Howard Levyâs notable producer skills give the CD its memorable sound. Thanks to harmonica master Howard Levy for producing his longtime friend Normanâs debut CD and generously playing on four tracks.
What a gift to the rest of us who will have a chance to savor this new work! This CD is a pleasure!
