Richard Bennett, new album

August 22, 2022

As promised, my new record, Tall Tale Tunes will hit the streaming and download services September 2nd. CD copies will be available at Amazon shortly after.
– Richard Bennett

Tall Tale Tunes is the latest instalment in an ongoing series of guitar instrumental masterpieces from Richard Bennett. This project like its predecessors, is a study in the art of touch, tone, taste and timing. The compositions are exquisitely crafted scores with melodies that carry the listener on dreamy flights of fantasy, up and don the fretboards of various guitars that can only be made to sound the way they do in the hands of Richard Bennett.
– Marty Stuart
