“Heavy Meadow” once again proves the musical class of Dean Magraw. This flatpicker’s playing is elegant and exciting, his influences range from America to India, he fuses folk, jazz, blues and world beats into an individual style. “Broken Silence”, Magraw’s first album with Acoustic Music, was selected as the “Best Instrumental Album 1994”. Only few guitarists are able to create music so naturally out of such drive, such accurate rhythm, such a remarkable feel for melodies, phrasing and dramaturgic build-up. “Heavy Meadow” demonstrates that Magraw has not only worked with tradition (sample the bluesy “Jeanne d’Arc”), but he has also understood the essence of modern DJ culture (listen in on “Heavy Meadow”).
