Enrico Marcandalli - Temporale Nel Parco

posted by dfbm | Write a Comment

This is a relatively unknown fingerstyle solo guitar album from the early eighties, out of Italy.

Enrico Marcandalli’s music shifts between classical guitar, world music, bits of blues and jazz. I have to admit, this album didn't stroke a chord in me in the beginning, but it grew - especially after listening to other recordings of him. It’s interesting, and it comes from a different spectrum of the guitar world that I am not so familiar with. Apparently Robbie Basho was an inspiration for Marcandalli, since he dedicated a song to him (see youtube videos below).

Twitter user @erretter discovered the album on archive.org. I just wrapped it up in a zip for easier download.

The download includes ¾ of the album Temporale Nel Parco (as far as I can tell) and some more tracks from an unknown album/recording.

If someone has more information about Marcandalli, please post in the comments or drop me a line.
