Masters of Acoustic Guitar is a fine collection of exceptional acoustic guitarists who favor the luxurious textures of contemporary instrumental and new age music. While this music will be a little bland for some tastes, there's a lot of subtlety and variety within this music, from the folk stylings of Leo Kottke to the jazzier Billy McLaughlin and Dirk Freymuth. Other featured guitarists include Ed Gerhard, Stephen Bennett, Eric Johnson, Oscar Lopez, Peter Roller, Don Ross, Eric Tingstad, and Andrew York. For contemporary instrumental fans, this collection is a worthwhile acquisition.
