Guthrie Kennard - Ranch Road 12 (CD)
Release Date: 01/01/16
As he enters his sixties and with acoustic blues experiencing another renaissance, Larry Johnson remains at the peak of his powers, causing jaws to drop with his supremely confident playing. A Johnson performance flows from one piece to the next like a stream-of-consciousness. He continues to improve his skills, retaining the sense of wonder toward the guitar that developed as a youth. 'It struck me how a man could get such harmony from six wires and a piece of wood,' he says. Two Gun Green is Johnson's second album on the Armadillo label and is a collaboration with National slide guitar extraordinare Brian Kramer and his band The Coach Lizards. The result in a relaxed, yet mainly up-tempo album filled with excellent fingerpicking and timeless acoustic blues.
