Acoustic duo Bhaj Townsend and Gordon Currie offer a calming, acoustic and decidedly hi-touch sound that, above all, is notable for its calming, laidback character. Their music is easy on the ears, with the instrumental “Distant Bell” being a perfect example. It’s also a display of some superior fretwork that delivers speed, accuracy and dynamics that are a real pleasure to hear. The vocal songs––the South American flavored “She’s Gone,” and the sensually nostalgic “Jasmine Wind”––are less satisfying, due mainly to the character of Townsend’s voice, which has a persona that projects an earnest, school-teacher quality that does not complement the music.
