Knut Værnes

A Night In Cassis (W/The Vertavo String Quartet Audio CDPurchased

After 4 years "in absence", the guitarist Knut Vaernes presents his last endeavour. Backed by the world famous Vertavo String Quartet, he interprets compositions written between 1992 and 2000. All of which having been released on KnutĀ“s earlier albums in typically jazz/fusion settings. The idea was simple: to try and view the tunes from a totally differrent angle by putting the guitar together with a string quartet. The interplay is very fitting and offers passioanate passages and beatiful moods in a very innovative way.
