Virtuoso guitarist Kaki King has returned to her instrumental roots, making a “guitar record” and enlisting the ETHEL string quartet to accompany her on her new record Glow. As she says,
“This is a guitar record,” Kaki says. “This is the sound of a person playing guitar. Whatever additions we made, the fundamental of this record is still one person playing a guitar. That’s who I am.”
But Glow is more than just the sound of a person playing guitar. It’s the sound of one of the best and most unique guitar players on the planet playing guitar. She last did so live in the Philly area this past summer at the XPoNential Music Festival, and she’ll back to play some more next Wednesday night at World Cafe Live. You can purchase tickets here.
