Heartmony is modern jazz guitarist Hristo Vitchev's fourth album as a leader. After his critically acclaimed quartet's debut record Song for Messabria and his first duo session with pianist Weber Lago The Secrets of An Angel, Hristo recorded The Perperikon Suite with his quintet (a large scale jazz suite specifically written for the 53rd edition of the Monterey Jazz Festival).
This year he releases his second outing with Latin Grammy Nominee Weber Lago. Heartmony is a truly intimate and colorful conversation between the two instruments. The music, which transports you from impressionistic landscapes to folkloric tales, and from melancholic memories to meditative trances, is simply the purest harmonious sounds Vitchev has put on tape up to date. Straight from the heart, healing energy that will embrace you long after you listen to it.
As the definition Hristo Vitchev gives to this new wordHeartmony: the simultaneous combination of feelings and emotions, especially when produced by experiences, memories, and stimulations pleasing to the heart, body, and soul," this music is as close to the heart as it gets.
If ever there were a marriage between classical music and jazz then this Heartmony is it. Hristo Vitchev and Weber Iago have created a very special experience." Grady Harp (Amazon.com)
