Jazz guitarist Steven Kirby presents Illuminations, a striking album of both instrumental pieces and lyrical vocalizations from the dulcet-toned Aubrey Johnson. Guest jazz musicians including John Funkhouser (piano/keys), Greg Loughman (bass), Mike Connors (drums/percussion), Bill Vint (sax/flute), Mark Shilansky (piano), Steve Hunt (keys), and Ed Lucie (bass) interleave their talent with Kirby’s exceptional guitar playing. The smooth, evocative music is a joy to experience, in this treasure recommended for both personal and public library collections. The tracks are “Parabola” (5:58), “I Hear a Rhapsody” (5:01), “Illuminations” (7:46), “Beautiful Rain” (5:09), “Lake Of Stars” (7:49), “Slow Circle” (6:35), “May The 4ths Be With You” (5:35), “A Luz Das Estrelas” (3:11), “Over The Rainbow” (6:04), “Returning” (6:05), and “Last Song” (6:24).
