Acoustic guitars in strange tunings, repeating keynotes that sometimes evoke Asian atmospheres, endlessly pearling and grooving fingerpicking. These are the ingredients of what the legendary John Fahey labeled "American primitive guitar." Strangely repetitive-meditative and at the same time close to classic country blues and ragtime. Guitarist Glenn Jones, who in his early years was still walking on progressive rock paths with the Boston band Cul de Sac, founded in 1990, is today one of the exceptional figures in the field of American acoustic solo guitar. Vade Mecum, which literally means "Go with me!" in Latin, he understands as an invitation to enter his intimate, sounding cosmos. During this tender and melancholy journey, we encounter some of the guitarist's former companions, musical obituaries that in no way resemble laments, but are joyful, luminous memories. Much of it seems tremendously spontaneous, as if freshly sprung from this present moment. He doesn't really write pieces, Jones says, he just follows the music wherever it takes him.
