Treat yourself to this: Stochelo Rosenberg & Joscho Stephan – Nuits de la Guitare 2015
Joscho Stephan is simply not human. His technique is so astonishingly crisp, articulate, precise, clear, that words fail me, and that’s rare.
Stochelo Rosenberg is very, very human, and that humanity lives in his jaw-dropping playing. He’s playful, funny, fast, smooth, laden, but not burdened, with passion.
Joscho Stephan is so good that one fears he will get lost in his own greatness, but he always manages to inject feeling and emotion into his fiery solos.
Each is an absolutely impeccable rhythm guitarist for the other. Both have vast, deep, wide and expansive musical imaginations, and they put on a breathtaking show in this recording.
When these two are on stage there is more talent in the room than in all of Hollywood.
