Ferguson's second CD release, "EXOTIC EXTREMES," includes fiery traditional tunes from gypsies and others from lands of the former Ottoman Empire (the Balkans and Middle East) transcribed for and performed on a electric guitar. As with his first CD, "STRAT TO STRAT," classical violin music performed on electric guitar, the transcriptions are true to the melodies, ornamentation, phrasing, etc. For a last few years around the time of this CD's release, Kevin had performed the music on this CD with the ensemble "Teshkoto," which consisted of Chris Golthorpe on bass, Craig Carney on drums and Michael Beach (Brothers of The Baladi) on native percussion (tapan, dumbek, etc.).


Music of EXOTIC EXTREMES Includes:

The time signatures follow the origin of the track titles listed above. The odd time signatures (for example 11/16, 7/8, 7/16, etc.) are mostly a result of following the rhythm of corresponding folk dances.

The above traditional dance and folk music was arranged for and performed on electric and acoustic guitars (Kevin Ferguson), bass (Chris Goldthorpe) and native percussion & other instruments.

Arrangements by: Kevin Ferguson or Kevin Ferguson & Chris Goldthorpe
