Jazz Rock guitar master Carl Orr really changes things up on Forbearance and what he gives us is a stunningly beautiful feast for the ears and the heart. Joined by an empathetic group of musicians, Orr may be quieter this time out, but his composing and brilliant guitar playing scream out louder than ever.
Carl's last 3 albums are now available on CD here. £12 includes postage worldwide.
Carl Orr is of the mind that his music can help make the world better. That is naïve to some. But those are the people who need to listen more. A musician has to believe in his music. He must also show a faith in a greater purpose, or his music will not be believable to others. Orr reaches out to believers and non-believers alike. He has already done so on past recordings such as Deep Down and Absolute Freedom. On Emergence he does so again. Orr is joined by a group of gifted musicians. Together they put forth a vision of a world that demands peaceful means to peaceful ends. Carl Orr is one of our finest jazz-rock guitarists and composers. The guitar is his weapon for peace and he knows how to wield it. Orr is a true believer. This is demonstrated on profound tunes of protest, warning, hope and peace. The message of his music will make you believe too.
