Anthony Ocaña, "Wet Fields," 2010 "Wet Fields," the new CD from Anthony Ocana, pushes nylon stringed guitar into all kinds of styles. This CD is really two recordings, because it’s packaged with the bonus disc "En Vivo Palacio de Bellas Artes." In that way it is a great value for your musical buck. Ocana plays both 6 and 10-stringed guitars. While the opening cut "Divertimento" is pretty traditional, we get a feeling for what is coming on track 2, "Homenaje a Heitor Villa-Lobos," with multiple parts colliding and morphing into various voices. "Improviso 2", dedicated to Anouar Brahem, drifts along slowly but with a focused intensity for over 10 minutes. Most of the songs on "Wet Fields" are dedicated to players or composers who have influenced Ocana. On "Estsudio 5", we can hear why it’s dedicated to Philip Glass: its minimalist feel drives the tune. "Ascending Soul" also follows some patterns of minimalism, with pulsating guitar and repeatedly vocal phrases. By contrast, his tantalizingly brief "Estudio 2" reveals the lovely, lyrical melody of the great Francisco Tarrega, to whom it is dedicated. "Improviso 3" has Ocana using percussive techniques on the soundboard and two-handed tapping on the fretboard, while developing a melody dedicated to the great Egberto Gismonti. This CD is an interesting study of nylon stringed styles, and worth a listen from an intuitive, sensitive musician who is creating his own unique musical space. © Kirk Albrecht
