HERE ARE A FEW REVIEWS
Bole is not only capable of producing hauntingly beautiful melodies that go on buzzing around in your head long after you've listened to them ,he also has a healthy disregard for musical convention, frequently embarking in untrodden directions that lesser musicians shy away from.
Bole has a way of writing memorable tunes and sounds. It's only possible to give vague outlines of music in prose, so to avoid getting totally incoherent and ridiculous, let's finish by nominating this as the best instrumental album of the year - buy it, then let's discuss it.
World class guitarist Bole weaves magic spells throughout this superb organic set with Arabic, and Celtic influences alongside Bert Jansch, Jimmy Page and Ry Cooder. Compendium showcases his mastery of the Weissenborn guitar as well as dobro, bouzouki and mandolins. He knows that the trick is not to play too much, and dazzles as much with his good taste and compositional excellence as he does with his undoubted virtuosity.
