On this exquisite disc, San Francisco-based fingerstyle guitarist Teja Gerken plays a nice mix of originals and a composition each by five of his fellow Bay Area guitarists. Played solo on steel-string, nylon-string, and 12-string acoustic guitars in a variety of tunings, the music is gentle and relaxing throughout, yet at the same time subtly stimulating. Gerken’s technical facility is obvious, his performances impeccable, and his tones gorgeous—but that virtuosity is entirely at the service of the music, and never overshadows it. tejagerken.com.
