As Gently Falls
This is the type of album you would play to help you wind down and relax, with songs to replenish, nourish and restore.
It is Rod Gear’s third instalment in his instrumental album catalogue. The title is indicative of the overall mood of the recording. All of the tracks deliver beautiful melodies performed on the nylon string guitar. The instrumentation is subtle, tasteful and sparse featuring cello, double bass, mandolin and a number of other acoustic instruments. Tasteful hand percussion on the album keep things moving but never much more than the tempo of a morning-stroll.
