||Bartlett ,Gray: Private Conversations
Gray Bartlett is one of New Zealand's most well-known guitarists and country music performers.
2016 released Private Conversations was conceived as an album to relax and refresh with at the end of a busy day.
"Gray Bartlett is something of an institution in NZ, well that’s what he told me. Seriously folks I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Gray over the last couple of years and discovered that he’s a man of various talents. However it’s his musical talent that really stands out on his latest CD, “Private conversations” which allows him to display both his virtuosity and versatility as a guitarist, which reminds me I need to practice more. The choice of material is diverse, engaging and he interprets the compositions with clarity and sensitivity; qualities that many guitarists lack. Gray’s command of different guitar techniques is also demonstrated as he switches easily from beautifully performed finger style acoustic, to slide guitar, to country rock and even to heavy blues rock; yes, our boy has serious chops.
Check out Gray’s version of APACHE it’s almost as good as mine.Congratulations to Gray on a FAB CD, buy it, you’ll love it.”
