On a jazz label, and while there elements of jazz, this artist and LP is more soundscapes/mood music akin to (but better than most), New Age music. Much of his guitar works also has a mournful psychedelic property, sending the listener on a whimsical voyage to wherever their imagination leads them. Hauntingly beautiful.
