Stuart McCallum & Mike Walker: The Space Between - NEW RELEASE 2016 (EDITION RECORDS)


The Space Between

STUART McCALLUM acoustic guitar and electronics
MIKE WALKER electric guitar

The first 50 copies will be signed

The Space Between is the second album by long-term friends & guitarists Stuart McCallum and Mike Walker. Following 2014’s self-produced Beholden, The Space Between is an album that expresses McCallum and Walker’s abiding love of melody and space, their friendship and respect, and the multifarious sounds and timbres that their instrument has to offer.

Beholden featured spacious reinterpretations of the guitarists’ compositions and jazz standards; the music was serene and elevated. The Space Between finds Stuart and Mike developing extra gravitas, focussing on McCallum originals written especially for the duo. In addition they include two exquisitely chosen standards: Bacharach & David’s Alfie and My Ideal, also covered by Sonny Rollins, that sit perfectly in the set, balancing the flow.
