Guitarist Harvey Valdes — one of the breakout players in Sound It Out’s “Monk on Guitars 2” extravaganza this past June — continues September’s guitar-centric theme by celebrating the release of his absorbing new album, Solitude Intones Its Echo, with a solo performance. (His solo version of “Pannonica” during the “Monk on Guitars 2” event was a jaw-dropping marvel.) Guitarist-producer extraordinaire David Torn, who mixed and mastered Harvey’s new album, said this about his initial encounter with the younger guitarist’s playing: “When I first heard Harvey, I thought: Well, here’s another badass motherfucker – wow.” All About Jazz has called Harvey’s music-making “cosmic,” while the Free Jazz Collective described his first solo album, Roundabout, as “sublimely beautiful.” This show is a Destiny Records double-bill, starting at 7:30pm, with the duo of guitarists Charlie Rauh & Cameron Mizell opening the night with tunes from their new album on the label, the lovely, Americana-laced What We Have in Common.
