Album Review

Tuma, Scott – “Not For Nobody ” – [Digitalis Industries]

humana   7/26/2008   A Library, CD

Americana: This second album from Chicagoan Scott Tuma is so lovely it???s heartbreaking. Only for the sentimental, these mostly instrumental pieces feature guitar, banjo, and occasional bells. Only the first and last tracks have vocals, a female making strange, haunting, child-like utterances. Tuma???s strength is in his ambient mellowness and lovely guitar work that floats in and out like a lullabye, a nostalgic one at that. PGM: Tracks 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, and 11 end a bit early, and 11 starts quiet. Field sounds (wind, bird chirping, chalk on board?) on 1, 8, and 12. Picks: 2, 4, 10. Ambient peace: 5, 6, 9, 11.
