"Just right for an hour of meditation."
- David Kidney, Green Man Review
Lawrenceville/Athens, Georgia - Yes, it''s happening. People who''ve never heard of Greg Clinton listen to their first sample track from Essays & Contemplations and then go and buy the CD. There''s a charm happening here - at places like Border''s Bookstore, https://www.tradebit.com, https://www.tradebit.com, and https://www.tradebit.com. And now, these delicious instrumental jazz-rock tracks have become available at Apple''s iTunes music store!
https://www.tradebit.com actually sold their last copy of Essays & Contemplations after their retail arrangement with the CD was discontinued by Greg (due to increased fees). However, https://www.tradebit.com is the largest independent CD retailer on the Web, each year selling millions of dollars in CDs by independent artists. CDBaby is definitely Greg''s favorite online outlet for the shrink-wrapped CD. The shopping cart from https://www.tradebit.com uses CDBaby''s service. And for downloads, there''s always iTunes!
Read a review of Essays & Contemplations by senior reviewer David Kidney at https://www.tradebit.com. Highlights:
"The music here is a blend of soft jazz and the sort of soundscapes that were found in the progressive rock of another decade. ... Pat Metheny is an influence on Clinton''s guitar playing."
"''City Nights'' is a moody guitar piece showcasing Clinton''s fretwork. Very tasty."
"Again Clinton''s guitar is the standout instrument, perfectly representing the contrasting moods; first thoughtful and sad, then lifting the spirit in hopefulness."
