Album Review: Hristo Vitchev Quartet - "In Search of Wonders" (8/10)

This is the seventh release for Bulgarian-born, S.F.-based guitarist Hristo Vitchev
 as a leader. And as a two-CD set it is his most ambitious. When you have that kind of
 space and time to work with, the results can 
be exploratory, yet offer a collection of fully
 realized and well conceived compositions. 
Vitchev plays in a very lyrical and somewhat 
ambient style reminiscent of Pat Metheny
and Steve Khan, with the elegance of Joe Pass. The music draws from classical and impressionistic elements and combines that with modern post-bop and hints of fusion. This is all-original fare from a jazz artist and group that speaks to a modern generation.

Score: 8 out of 10
