Ghost Frets, my latest solo guitar album, dedicated to my dear friend and fellow six string samurai, Garrison Fewell is now available as of 9/16/16. It features a couple of songs by Garrison including Ayleristic and Blues Update, plus a tune G and I used to love to play in our duo concerts, Monk’s Let’s Cool One. As with all Hofbauer solo outings there has to been wacky covers and this one keeps to that maxim with The Ghost in You by the Psychedelic Furs and All Things Must Pass by my fave of the fab four, George Harrison. I also do two jazz classics from vastly different styles, Out to Lunch by Eric Dolphy and Buddy Bolden’s Blues by Joe “King” Oliver (see video clip from studio session below), plus several original compositions for solo guitar. Ghost Frets is now available for PURCHASE at Bandcamp.com. With the order you get the download format of your choice (along with a digital booklet with awesome liner notes by jazz critic and historian David R. Adler). BTW this album is a DIGITAL ONLY release! I’m trying something new and joining the future. Click the player below to hear Ayleristic and Let’s Cool One and place your ORDER! This is a collection of very personal music predominantly about or inspired by my friendship and collaborations with Garrison, I recorded it entirely acoustic (no amps, overdubs or effects) on my Guild Artist Award so it is intimate yet dynamic. I’m honored to share it with the world. Feel free to share your feedback. Thanks always for your support and interest.
