David Evan Thomas http://wrti.org en Kile Smith Suggests: THRUM, the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet http://wrti.org/post/kile-smith-suggests-thrum-minneapolis-guitar-quartet <p>From the opening moments of its recent CD <em>Thrum</em>, the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet throws its cards on the table. Attitude and refined sound are the driving forces here. Even the first percussive beats that herald the strut through Harlem&mdash;the first movement of Daniel Bernard Roumain&rsquo;s <em>Ghetto Strings</em>&mdash;are nuanced, a combination of tap, stroke, and pound. This is delicious playing.</p><p> Mon, 30 Sep 2013 03:13:56 +0000 Kile Smith 6490 at http://wrti.org Kile Smith Suggests: THRUM, the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet
