Dear Friends in Music
Mr. MoonJune highly recommends "Chasing Tales" by Pete Oxley and Nicolas Meier, a superb album of profound beauty, released in the UK earlier this year on the independent MGP Records, featuring the legendary English axeman Pete Oxley, and the extraordinary Swiss born and UK based guitarist extraordinaire Nicolas Meier who is currently recording, playing and touring with Jeff Beck. Jeff and his wonderful band is starting a big USA tour this month, and his band, besides Nicolas on acoustic, electric and synth guitar, also includes Jonathan Joseph on drums, Rhonda Smith on bass and Jimmy Hall on vocals.
Jeff Beck USA tour dates: www.jeffbeckofficial.com/tour
Later this year Nicolas and MoonJune will start a brand new collaboration and in meantime, please check out this wonderful album.

THIS ALBUM CAN BE PURCHASED DIRECTLY ON MPG REORDS's WEBSITE.

"…a partnership that emphasises the beauty and purity of their sound."
         – Bruce Lindsay, All About Jazz

"This invitingly song-based repertoire stretches wide enough to engage listeners beyond the coterie of jazz guitar fans."
        – John Fordham, Guardian

"Using nylon- and steel-strung, acoustic and electric 12-string models, guitar synths, fretless guitars and the oud-like glissentar and Turkish baglama, they incorporate a world of sound possibilities into compositions that range from fairly conventional swing guitar tunes to Pat Metheny-like electric soundscapes to soundtracks from a souk. Wherever their adventures take them, the accent is firmly on melody and often joyous, song-like development. Meier's Tales goes as far as to hint at kinship to Hotel California, and while the fingers can get busy (as on Oxley's witty Breezin' On), the music always communicates with a feeling of spontaneity, passion and enjoyment."
        – Rob Adams, Herald Scotland

"This album captures the lightning in a bottle effect created by the union of two perfectly matched artists and is already the front runner for my album of the year. I really can’t wait to see what Pete and Nicolas do next!"
        – Ben Calverley, JazzViews.net

"Oxley and Meier, two outstanding players of contrasting, yet complementary styles who individually composed most of the pieces on the album have built upon this glorious past and taken it into a new dimension - layering tracks, the tasteful use of some electronic wizardry and  utilising nylon and steel string acoustics, electric, 12 string, fretless, slide, synth and glissentar guitars to great effect and, I hasten to add, in a manner unlikely to upset the purists.The end result is a worthy addition to the guitar duo Hall of Fame."
        – Lance, Be Bop Spoken Here
