Stan Hirsch Compelled To Play · Edward Simon Trio Poesía

Stan Hirsch doesn't need anything fancy. He can take a beat-up guitar and an amp on its last legs and produce the best blues music in Albuquerque. The recording process for Compelled To Play consisted of Hirsch sitting down, picking up his guitar and playing. He didn’t attempt multiple takes or add backing tracks—nothing that would compromise the live feel of his record. Hirsch is a beast on the guitar, acoustic or electric, and his respect for honest, unfiltered craftsmanship runs deep. Whether reinterpreting Robert Johnson or fingerpicking through one of his moody originals, Hirsch's intimate understanding of his six-stringed companion is on full display. (SM)
