  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    SORRY BUT WE DON'T SHIP TO USA (Ask your local record shop)


    "Steffen Junghans' choice to incorporate 'Basho' into his name might lead us to conclude that he is a musician in thrall to the late, great Daniel Robinson, better known as Robbie Basho. And yet, as this album proves, Steffen remains one of the most idiosyncratic, self-determined guitarists currently operating. As ever, Steffen draws on a sonic palette quite unlike anyone else's. I detect echoes of Robinson, certainly, but I also detect the burbling sequences of analogue synthesizers, the stark tones of the Japanese koto and the windswept plains of his native Thuringia in the ever-spiralling waves of Steffen's inimitable music.”

about

-------------------------------------------------------

"When it comes to guitar soli music, few artists possess the finesse and precision of Steffen Basho-Junghans, particularly on his latest album, The Dancer on The Hill."

- Record Crates United

-------------------------------------------------------

"Each [track] projects a weightless grace, as though it's the air itself that is dancing."

- Bill Meyer, The Wire

-------------------------------------------------------

"... this album proves, Basho-Junghans remains one of the most idiosyncratic, self-determined guitarists currently operating."

- Nick Jonah Davis

-------------------------------------------------------

"Basho-Junghans plays with noble poise, although he sometimes relaxes into moments of relaxed repose - most notably on dreamy stargazing number 'Clear Night'."

- Louis Pattison, Uncut

-------------------------------------------------------

"the solo guitar format will always be indebted to SBJ for being a ceaseless explorer and forming a legacy that will hopefully touch the hearts and minds of future generations of aspiring guitarists and musicians."

- Ryan McGregor

-------------------------------------------------------

"a delightful foray into the kind of impressionist guitar landscapes that his work is always hinting at, but also shows the kind of speed and repetitive tenacity that has been building up over so many years of playing."

- Mr Olivetti, Freq
