For AltiplanosBensusan continues, in part, with the solo guitar approach of his last disc, Intuitebut broadens the landscape with two vocal tracks, as well as a handful of pieces featuring guest percussionist Blaise Boutlefeu, saxophonist Didier Malherbe, and bassist Michel Benita. The result is a broader scope, without sacrificing the intimacy so inherent in all his work. But the overall ambience of his work is still that of a folk artist, albeit one with broader interests. There’s a rich sustenance to his tone that can only come from the specific way he holds onto notes, letting them resonate deeply before moving on, even through more rapidly executed phrases.

Bensusan’s remarkable technical ability has never been in question, but it’s the sheer musicality and lyricism of his body of work that has cemented his position as one of the most accomplished acoustic guitarists on the planet.

Altiplanoswith its combination of solo, multitracked and ensemble pieces, simply reaffirms and builds upon Bensusan’s already stellar reputation. Visit Pierre Bensusan on the web.
