Portrait of Max Goldston

Following a collection of guitar instrumentals recorded between 1996 and 2005 entitled WESTERN AGE and a 2006 collaboration with Barcelona-based producer ANTONI COLOMAR, Goldston began working in the Vermont studio of WINDHAM HILL Records founder WILL ACKERMAN. The results can be heard on EMANCIPATION, GOLDSTON'S 2009 CD RELEASE. For anyone who doesn’t know or remember, Will Ackerman’s tenure as the head of Windham Hill yielded some of the most meditative and atmospheric instrumental music of the mid ‘80s and early ‘90s and he’s also the man who helped craft the term New Age. Recording up at Ackerman’s Imaginary Road studios, Goldston makes the most of the studio’s high tech sound and comes out a winner with Emancipation. Few guitarists today are as adept and proficient as Goldston when it comes to capturing the Windham Hill guitar sound that Ackerman helped introduce with his signings back then, including the late great Michael Hedges, Alex DeGrassi and Ackerman himself. An essential spin for fans of the acoustic guitar, Emancipation is a breezy acoustic guitar masterpiece and will appeal to fans of the Windham Hill sound and beyond. Further assisted by top sound engineer CORIN NELSEN, Goldston makes his Martin guitar ring out loud and clear on a solid CD that simultaneously traces the legacy of the acoustic instrumental guitar sound while bringing it forward into the future. One other point to mention is the eye-catching artwork adorning the CD cover of of Emancipation, to which Goldston comments, ‘The cover design is a painting called “La Chica con Guitarra”. The painter is TOM PROVO, an artist I met over in Ibiza years ago. He now resides in Blacksburg Virginia and his many paintings are in some of the top art galleries of the country. The design for the CD was done by graphic art designer ANGELES DIAZ in Barcelona and the CD was manufactured by DISCMAKERS.’ ROBERT SILVERSTEIN
