Reissue with the latest 24bit remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. A few short years ago the rich, subtle rhythms of Brazil's popular music swept north to dazzle the American musical scene with a tantalizing new sound. Today that sound has become a permanent part of our musical ways.
It is easy to see why, for Brazilian composers have a way of combining melody and rhythm in a meld that gives a feeling of romance to every note, an amorous message to every chord. And this is the spirit that Guitars Unlimited have captured in their first recording … an album of contemporary moods styled for listening today! No violins, no brass, no reeds, only soft guitars and gentle rhythm … and a program of romantic statements as welcome as spring's first sunlight.
Paul Ellis had developed himself into a mighty force in electronic music. After his fantastic 2005-album “Silent Conversations” on which the American multi-instrumentalist (synthesizers, guitars, bass, rhythms) worked with guest musicians like Steve Roach and Jeffrey Koepper and the solo-album “The Infinity Room” from 2006, he returns with “The Last Hiding Place Of Beauty”.
This last hiding place was created visually by the innovative designer Pablo Magne through a really great cover. The mixture between good music and a fine cover always does well. Fitting like a glove.
Ellis was one of the founders of the retroband Dweller At The Threshold with which he recorded some memorable music. Solo, he has created classics with albums like “The Secred Ordinary”, “Silent Conversations” and “The Infinity Room” on the Groove Unlimited label. Also, he released “Echo System” with his fellow American and stylemember Craig Padilla.
With “The Last Hiding Place Of Beauty” he undoubtedly again has released a future classic.
