Another fantastic, imaginative album from Jim Stubblefield

I have four of Jim’s albums: Guitarra Exotica, Inspiracion, Encantado, and now Guitare Mystique. Jim’s latest effort is equally as soothing and vibrant as his previous albums. While the entire album is incredible, there are four tracks that really stand out to me. Caravan of Souls is very similar to tracks from Guitarra Exotica, which I loved. Before the Storm begins and ends with the soothing sound of rainfall, and has a distinct smooth jazz feel to it, like something played in a fancy hotel. Moonlight Requiem is perhaps the most beautiful track from the album—the violin is quaint and haunting. Sueño Pacífico also has the jazz vibe—it is faster paced but still quite relaxing. Truly, each track has its own distinct sound and feel, yet all 10 fit so well together. I followed the making of this album on Jim’s Instagram account, and feel that each song has even more value after seeing the hours poured into their production. I am currently writing a medieval fantasy novel, and the first thing I do before each typing session is shuffle my entire Jim Stubblefield library. Overall, Guitare Mystique is a fine addition to Jim’s works. I absolutely recommend it if you enjoy his other albums, exotic guitar/flamenco, and relaxing songs that let your imagination run wild. Props to his production team and those who play the various instruments on each song. Keep up the amazing work, Jim. I already can’t wait for the next album!
