A Guide to the Beautiful Guitar Universe of Loren Connors

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

Loren Mazzacane Connors has yet to appear in any of Rolling Stone’s sporadic lists ranking the world’s 100 greatest guitarists. But since the late ’70s, Connors has become one of the instrument’s truly singular voices. Whether improvising meditative solo pieces or collaborating with any of his dozen duet partners, Connors’s vision of warped, gestural blues is instantly identifiable, from his first wobbling note or even a trickle of tape hiss. It sounds like nothing else.
