Reviewing the best in non-mainstream acoustic guitar music

September/October, 2008

Laurence Juber, "Pop Goes Guitar," Solid Air Records, 2008

The music on this CD will reinforce Laurence Juber’s status as the ultimate feel-good acoustic guitarist. "Pop Goes Guitar" focuses on one strong aspect of Juber’s repertoire: solo instrumental versions of well-known pop tunes. Earlier in his career he recorded "My Girl" and Jimi Hendrix’s "Little Wing," delved extensively into the Beatles and Wings catalogs, and took a left turn into the Great American Songbook with "I’ve Got the World on Six Strings," a wonderful CD devoted to Harold Arlen’s music. On this new disc he gives the same treatment to iconic pop songs of the 1960s and later (the most recent being The Police’s 1983 hit, "Every Breath You Take"). Several recordings from Juber’s earlier CDs reappear, including "Let it Be," "Maybe I’m Amazed," "My Girl," "Oh! Darling," "My Love" and "In My Life." The new tracks, including Brian Wilson’s "God Only Knows," Elvis Costello’s "Alison," Jagger-Richards’ "Angie," and Elton John/Bernie Taupin’s "Your Song," are great listening and will broaden the horizons of guitarists who take their cues from Juber the teacher. Of the new recordings, my own favorite is his moody rendition of "God Only Knows." This music works on many levels; his song choices are great, as is the guitar playing. Also, by presenting these tunes as instrumental solos, Juber promotes their acceptance as standards for instrumental guitarists. Not coincidentally, Juber has published a companion book/CD package, Popular Songs for Acoustic Guitar (Hal Leonard), in which he teaches the tunes on this CD. You won’t go wrong buying "Pop Goes Guitar," either as a CD or from iTunes.
