Tom Caufield’s debut album, “The Slow Dance of Time” offers nine emotional, meditative instrumental compositions performed on Spanish Guitar. Sharing elements with the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi, the music is sparse, simple, humble in execution, and expresses a sense of aching beauty. It acknowledges the suffering of life yet conveys the open-ended nature of creation and experience. With compositions as interesting as they are subtle, “The Slow Dance of Time” is a guitar music collection of uncommon beauty.
