- uwe kropinski: american dream - fourteen solo guitar pieces
(2005, cd, ger, acoustic music records / rough trade)
A remarkable album. Not in the least because Uwe Kropinski mixes jazz and classical guitar, creates beautiful original pieces and performs incredible arrangements of compostions by Frank Zappa, John Coltrane, Bill Evans and Oscar Hammerstein.
Uwe's seven-plus-minute reworking of Frank Zappa's 'King Kong' had me (almost) holding my breath during the entire piece.
Highly recommended !!
