I praise NPR for the gems that they continuously uncover and show me. While listening to WLRH out of Huntsville, I just heard the coolest version of Pachelbel’s ‘Canon in D’ rendered on classical guitar. Four of them, to be exact. It looped around and around, the instruments weaving contrapuntally, incorporating one style and then another in turn; I found myself rushing to the stereo to turn it up.

Titled “The Pachelbel Loose Canon”, it’s by the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet and available on the disc “For Thy Pleasure“. Most assuredly it is. You can listen here.

And lucky me, I discovered that they are booked to play with the Nashville Symphony in early October.

Don´t be shy. Lay it on me.
