Ralf Illenberger - Red Rock Journey - Stockfisch Records -180g vejl pris 225,-
With his new album Red Rock Journeys, a musician who can undoubtedly be classed as one of the greats of acoustic guitar music can now be heard on Stockfisch: Ralf Illenberger who had recorded with Stockfisch Records in the 70ies (in these days together with his mate Martin Kolbe).
Ralf IIlenberger‘s home and place of work is Sedona, Arizona, a location of great natural beauty to which spiritual power is also attributed. And Red Rock Journeys epitomizes a true Illenberger: holding that fine balance between deep, earthy sound and soaring, airy heights – between rock-solid craftsmanship and the capacity for transcendence.
Songs which elude the shackles of musical genre; while ideal for quietly dreaming, they can also unleash a surprising amount of energy and drive.
Red Rock Journeys takes the listener on an evocative journey to Ralf Illenberger‘s Sedona: A well-built house with expansive windows that pull in the light and a panoramic view of the landscape – both that with-out and that within.
