EDITORS’ NOTES

There hasn’t been an acoustic guitarist as elegantly masterful as Ryley Walker since the heyday of Davey Graham and John Fahey more than a generation ago. Interweaving British folk, bluegrass, classical, and jazz influences, Walker fills his debut album, All Kinds of You, with graceful melodic sweeps and beautifully detailed embellishments. From the slow, moody swirl of “The West Wind” and the downhome vigor of “Twin Oaks, Pt. 1” through the raga-tinged sparkle of “Clear the Sky” and the Appalachian-accented lilt of “Tanglewood Spaces,” Walker is consistently impressive here as both a composer and an instrumentalist.
