music videos--Ourkouzounov, Connie and Kruisbrink

Very longtime readers of Wenatchee The Hatchet probably already know that Atanas Ourkouzounov is one of my favorite living guitarist composers.  Well, here's another sample of some of his work

Now back on the East Coast, formerly Seattle guitarist Meredith Connie has a trio you can give a listen

Finally, as chamber music for double bass and guitar goes my favorite composer would, hands down, be guitarist Annette Kruisbrink.  Time and resources permitting, hope to discuss this post-minimalist gem later this year ...

Also hoping to sorta review/discuss Andrew Durkin's book Decomposition later this year, too. There's stuff I really like about the book and some stuff that's more literary treatise about literary treatises than musical discussion.  I can try to explain what I mean by that later on.
