New Harald Peterstorfer album is warm and diverse
(Published: July 29, 2020)

Composer/multi-instrumentalist Harald Peterstorfer has a one-of-a-kind focus on creating modern jazz music with a penchant for old-school vibes and a lot of warmth, not to mention the world-class musicianship that fuels his releases. Peterstorfer recently dropped a studio album titled Secret Garden. This project features 15 tracks, highlighting the diverse and nuanced range of the artist's skills.

As a guitarist, Peterstorfer knows how to really allow the instrument to be as expressive as possible. The melodies take the center stage from the get-go, and the album is a great example of what it means to use limitation and constraint when it comes to songwriting and musical composition. By that I mean that Peterstorfer could play so many more notes in a phrase if he wanted to, but he knows how to add value to the empty spaces as well as his most articulate passages.

Some jazz-inspired guitarists miss the point, trying to dazzle the audience by constantly swirling up and down the guitar's neck. However, great music is all about feeling. These songs represent his life-long connection with the instrument, which is almost like an extension of himself. The arrangements are balanced and direct, and each song has something quite special to bring to the table. In addition to that, I also really enjoy the production of this release. The songs are polished and crisp, yet they have somewhat of a "live" feel, which enables the musicians to capture the spontaneity of the performances, without being buried under many layers of overproduction and studio trickery.

This is jazz music at its best, with a sprinkle of fusion here and there, but with a classic feel that might remind you of some of the greatest names in the industry. I'd warmly recommend listening to this release if you are a fan of smooth sounds and intricate melodic patterns. Peterstorfer accomplished something quite special with this release, and there is something for everyone on this particular album.
