recordings by steve tibbetts
“…it’s Tibbetts’ resonant 12-string—imbued in phrasing and serpentine linearity by the guitarist’s longstanding Far East interests in general, and the work, here, of Sultan Khan in particular—that’s Natural Causes’ defining voice.” -The Guardian
“Tibbetts also loves to rock: He recorded much of the searing guitar on “A Man About A Horse” in a single night, over frenetic Balinese drum samples colored and doubled by percussionists Marc Anderson and Marcus Wise.” -Rolling Stone
“Tibbetts’ bold single-string passages pilot twists and turns above slapped and strummed acoustic rhythms, and his quirky detunings and oddball figures provide a cinematic, edge-of-the-seat experience.” -Guitar Player
“Marc Anderson’s forceful percussion has an animated, almost conversational quality, and Tibbetts’ striking fret work runs the gamut from meditative solo passages to heartstopping blasts of rainbow feedback” -Rolling Stone
This three-CD compilation has over three hours of remastered music culled from 11 records and is meant as an introduction to Tibbett’s far-reaching imagination and to whet the appetite for his back catalog and future endeavors.
