In the Toronto Star's books section, I review The Thursday Night Men, the latest novel by French author Tonino Benacquista.



Mixtape: The Neverending Guitar Solo

I listen to a lot of music, and so every once in a while I get the urge to string some of it together and see what effect it produces.  This first set is a mix composed purely of guitar solos and solo guitar work in all its manifestations, treatments, experiments and eras. 22 tracks ranging from 1920's Egyptian oud to 2010 guitar drone minimalism.
