Woody Russell in Concert
Critically acclaimed guitarist, singer and songwriter, Woody Russell, has released a body of recorded work that spans from the folk infused songwriter fare of his first album, as simple as that (1996), to his IMA nomination of "Album Of The Year" for Salt (2005), to the highly praised Texas blues and soul release, Up Against It (2010).
For years, however, privately exploring his own creative impulses, Russell has composed and recorded music influenced by his love and respect for jazz, film music and other styles beyond that for which he is most recognized. His multi-instrumental talents continue to produce music that is vastly different from what he has released commercially as a recording artist since 1996.
But now, fans finally have an opportunity to hear the full spectrum of his expansive and diverse musical offerings with Big Sky - a collection of Woody's select instrumental recordings from his mostly "private" repertoire, dating back to a track from the late 90's. As evidenced in the music presented in this collection, he continues to explore more adventurous and sophisticated compositions involving, not only his highly crafted guitar playing, but also elaborate orchestration. Jazz, ambient electronic, orchestral, acoustic and world music are all present in his instrumental work.
