Acclaimed guitarist and two time SAMA nominee James Grace makes a welcome return to the Kalk Bay Theatre for the launch of ‘Chilled’, his sixth solo guitar studio album. ‘Chilled’ also celebrates 10 years of Grace’s independently owned and operated record label, Stringwise Records.
Breaking with tradition from his previous five solo albums consisting largely of music for classical guitar, ‘Chilled’ features Grace’s own unique arrangements of songs by artists including The Beatles, Eric Clapton, Jesse Harris, Carol King and Billy Joel. ‘Chilled’ also introduces a South American element with a medley of original compositions and arrangements by Brazilian guitar maestro Marco Pereira.
The album title appropriately describes the mood and ‘feel’ of the CD, which draws substantially on material from Grace’s previous shows Guitar Hero and Guitar Hero II.
‘Chilled’ continues to celebrate the diversity of the modern day instrument, and demonstrates the fingerboard prowess which has led Grace to recently be described by local media as a ‘South African icon’ (Odile Hufkie, www.whatsonincapetown.com).
