Free album download: “Enjoy our “4th Advent Special” album – for free. Multi-Grammy Award winning fingerstyle guitarist Laurence Juber, well know as the lead guitarist for Paul McCartney’s Wings, has been voted “Guitarist of the Year” by readers of Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine, as well as one of the top acoustic players of all time by Acoustic Guitar Magazine. Pete Townshend, who should know, even called him “a Master!” Juber appears in October’s edition of Guitar Player Magazine, to talk about his signature Martin guitar that he plays on his new album “Holidays & Hollynights” with Domenic Genova on bass and Michael Jochum on drums (both of whom played with Juber in the studio bands for The Rosanne Show and Home Improvement). The album was recorded at Hollywood’s famed Capitol Studios and includes a selection of Christmas favorites, blending folk, jazz and blues, it’s a perfect mix for the holiday season.”

“Juber impressively struts his stuff on the fretboard with a rollicking boogie woogie take on a “Frosty the Snowman” before cooling matters back down with a catchy pop version of “Jingle Bells.” He concludes with a cool bonus track featuring a haunting modal version of “The Christmas Song,” capping off a delightful album with intelligently employed chordal and melodic phrases from all corners of the musical spectrum. It’s a holiday album you can savor for its musicality along with its dual role as charming background ambiance for those long and winding holiday gatherings.” (Wayne Riker)
