5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets...., 16 Dec 2013

This review is from: Intuite (Audio CD)
'Intuite' is a stunning guitar instrumental album. The music takes on elements of folk, Arab, Baroque, Folk and pastoral elements in a uniquely satisfying blend.

'Intuite' works on a number of levels, brilliantly. Firstly as music, pure and simple for this is an album of proper compositions and hastily lashed together platforms for extended improvisation. So for the non -guitarist it is a great listen from beginning to end. I loved the enchanting 'Bourree Voltage' and the lovely 'En Route to Scarborough', but really each tune has a particular charm of its own. Taken together these pieces add up to a well paced, melodic and thoughtfully conceived collection of beautifully recorded instrumentals. Secondly as a bible for aspiring guitarists, `Intuite' is about as good as it gets as a showcase for the acoustic guitar. The level of technical ability and musicality is astonishing. Bensusan sounds like a guitar orchestra. Yet for all his abilities as a guitarist we never feel that we are being bombarded with fireworks for their own sake. Bensusan has too much taste and restraint for cheap tricks and tedious displays of self-indulgence. He is a composer first and a guitarist second.

'Intuite' is simply a beauitiful album. Recommended.
