Gonzalo Bergara Quartet

Try this experiment: Find a Gonzalo Bergara Quartet video on YouTube—preferably a live one (I just watched “Some of These Days”)—and before hitting play, mute it. Watch Bergara’s left hand move around the fretboard of his classical guitar like a tarantula hopped up on speed. There’s a grace and quickness that will leave your mouth agape as you wonder what could it possible sound like for a picker to move so fast. Then, turn on the volume. You will be hit with arpeggio guitar work knocking out labored-over phrasing that nods to gypsy-jazz legend Django Reinhardt while also paying homage to composer Bergara’s Argentine heritage. Now that the experiment is over and you’re using your ears, give the 2012 release Walking Home a spin—it’s heavy without losing sensuousness. $17
