Claus Boesser-Ferrari occupies an exceptional position amongst guitarists.
His CD “Ten" once again reveals an unorthodox musician whose dinstinct approach takes him away from guitarist orthodoxy. He possesses the ability to endow pop and jazz milestones from Jimi Hendrix to J. J. Cale with his own insistent, expressionistic style and to paint them in exciting new colors. Sometimes he does not even complete the themes but merely hints at them, leaving it up to the listeners to fit the pieces together themselves. His own compositions range from ballade-like waltzes to rousing, virtuoso Latin grooves. The impressive percussion interludes are not an end in themselves but cleverly embedded in the composition. Apart from baritone and resonator guitars, Boesser-Ferrari mainly plays his 12-string guitar. Once again he proves that he is one of the few guitarists which make innovative use of the instrument.
