Bruce Dunlap lavishes us with his sensuous acoustic guitar set against a very sensitive sax and rhythm backdrop. Magical music is created with rich colors and intricate textures of sound set against strong rhythms. About Home is a beautiful tapestry of sound, style, and musical invention. A kaleidoscopic tour de force.

Reviews"Hispanic folk music and Indian mythos inform Dunlap's pretty tunes, but don't get in the way of his focused and tricky chordal patterns. He's a disciplined, understated player with a strong melodic sense and has wonderful technique, but uses it with discretion." - Ion Andrews, Downbeat
