"Joe Morris effortlessly changes the face of modern guitar every time he plays, one hand touches the ancients; the other is pulling in the future, all wrapped in a blanket called now." - William Parker

Good god! This Is Joe Morris solo on acoustic steel string guitar. An impeccable entry into Morris' remarkable canon of work, this is 10 exquisitely improvised songs of future now. The naked setting of these solo performances on acoustic guitar (a plugged-in Les Paul is his standard apparatus) showcases both Morris’ awe-inspiring musical intent, and unparalleled technical prowess. The sum total of Singularity ought to escape no one with proclivities toward either soul music or new forms of musical expression. The tip here being that these two attractions are not mutually exclusive. West Aftrica is in the living room. –SJ
