Preston Reed : Spirit

© Preston Reed 2006

Preston Reed built his reputation over the last three decades playing acoustic, finger-style guitar. Now, Preston plugs in to bring you an album brimming over with deeply intimate and refreshingly honest jazz compositions that will stay with you forever.

This record was made over the course of eleven days at a studio on the north side of Dublin. I have never made a record like it before. This project was recorded with one guitar, a classic, floating bridge, large-box Yamaha jazz guitar from the seventies (Gibson L-5 type). It's the type of instrument that radiates history and authority, and was played by countless jazz legends. My friend Malcolm Cooper gave me the guitar after I asked to borrow it one day. His proviso for this magnanimous gift was that I "do something with it". That was easy. Ideas seemed to pour out of it every time I played it. I couldn't put it down. After a short while I knew I wanted to do a record with it.
