guitarist Charles Postlewate has performed concerts across the United
States, Canada, Mexico, Peru and the Caribbean, to critical acclaim. El
Heraldo (Mexico City) wrote, "Postlewate demonstrated mastery
of his instrument and captivated the audience with his beautiful interpretations,"
and the Phoenix press stated that Postlewate is "unquestionably
master of the frets, a technical wizard, and his presentation was hot
and fluid." His recordings have drawn praise from The Associated
Press (IMPRESSIVE), National Public Radio (SUPERB) and Guitar
Player Magazine (MASTERFUL).
Postlewate's versatile background in both jazz and classical playing has
prompted legendary jazz guitarist Johnny Smith to call his playing, "OUTSTANDING"
and "EXCELLENT," and Classical Guitar Magazine
(London) to call him, "an important figure who commands the respect
of us all (with) an assertive style that is never less than musicanly."
The important and innovative work by Postlewate on the utilization of
the little finger in the right hand technique of classical guitar began
in 1985 and culminated in 2001 with the publication of two books and the
release of his latest CD, HOMAGE TO VILLA-LOBOS. This work has
taken him to Spain and South America and has drawn praise from such guitarists
as Abel Carlevaro: "It will make history for the guitar,"
and Ricardo Iznaola: "it will be a contribution worthy of serious
study by all guitarists."
