'Midnight in Nashville' is the title of Joe Robinson's second album. The album features twelve of his own songs. The pieces are not only technically difficult, but the compositions itself are also quite impressive.
Joe makes use of a thumbpick in all of the songs, and he uses his palm to mute the bass a little bit. The fast licks that sometimes pop up in the songs fit well; they are not only there to show how fast it can be played.
In the records you can clearly hear the thumbpick touching the strings. In de background you will softly hear Joes feet tapping the floor, and the movements of his arm against the guitar. These kind of sounds will make you think that's he is playing right in front of you
The song 'Bergeson Fries' features Tommy Emmanuel. Besides that, this song shows how beautiful you can mix two guitars into a stereo sound.
Maybe the album could have contained one ore two more slower, ballad-type songs. But nevertheless, it is a magnificent album, and Joe Robinson seems to have a great future in the music.
