'Morning Haikus, Afternoon Ragas' by Buck Curran on Spotify

'Morning Haikus, Afternoon Ragas' (ESP-Disk/Obsolete Recordings) the new album by Buck Curran is now available on Spotify

Guitar Gorgeous Edition: Ezra Feinberg, Buck Curran, Gyan Riley @ JamBase

'Morning Haikus, Afternoon Ragas' included in this 'Gorgeous Guitars' edition at JamBase along with albums by Ezra Feinberg and Gyan Riley.

"The new record of solo guitar music from Buck Curran is called Morning Haikus, Afternoon Ragas and no words I could write could improve on such a poetic description of such poetic acoustic music. This is daytime guitar for early risers and daydreamers and those who just need a pause. Seventeen tracks of pure guitar music, some short improvisations interspersed with Curran’s compositions, lovingly crafted and beautifully delivered, the album is a single meditation. I think you’ll dig it". - Aaron Stein/JamBase

Peter Green - Five Essential 'Live' Solos

Buck has written an article about Five Essential 'Live' Solos by Peter Green for Guitar Player Magazine. Original photo by George Wilkes Archive.

I also want to add a public statement to my article: I love Claptons early work and his role w/Bluesbreakers is key to PG's history. To clarify regarding my comments about Clapton. I am only stating in article that Peter Green's work was On Par/Equal to Clapton's best. Peter Green's work deserves to been celebrated along with Clapton. It's unfortunate that when I was growing up, I never even heard of Peter Green..cause nobody was talking about him...while Clapton was everywhere, I am Grateful for both musicians.
