Music For People CD

"FINALLY, along comes Music for People, a slew of different guitars, echoes of a dozen genres, but not the least disconnected or buffet. There exists a loving loneliness in this work, a heartbreaking tonality and compassion. Keith's virtuosity is undeniable, but there is no hint of pyrotechnics here, nothing extra; knowledge never eclipses emotion. The recording is simply beautiful. New York taxis roar, Keith breathes between phrases, overdubs click -- all haphazard dimensionality as time bends and rules break. Deep stuff. If you listen on headphones, your loved one approaches, presses his/her face against yours, says, "what IS that?" It's one of my favorite records. PEOPLE, Keith Ganz seems to've composed a record for us, and tirelessly in spite. - Paul Curreri, City Salvage Records, singer/songwriter/guitarist extraordinaire

All About Jazz review of Music for People:
“…the sheer heart-on-sleeve intimacy of the disc enables Ganz to work a certain kind of magic. “Long Goodbye” is a minor masterpiece…”

Minor 7th Acoustic Guitar magazine review of Music for People:
you'll be granted passage to some of the loveliest compositions I've ever heard be self-produced by an independent artist. Ganz' halting phrases are like tentative steps into a realm of sanctity”

Lessons

Keith is currently accepting guitar students.

Dear Jazz Guitarist,

Do you wish your lines had as much fluidity and momentum as a horn player’s?
Do you wish you could play bebop without feeling boxed in by the chords or by the fretboard?
Do you wish you could play solo guitar with the freedom of a pianist and without struggle?
Do you wish you could connect melodic lines through unrelated modern polychords?
Do you wish you could hear better?
Do you wish you could play a duo gig with a sax player or vocalist and make it really swing without having to walk bass lines all night?
DO YOU WISH YOU WERE MORE SATISFIED WITH YOUR PLAYING?

To inquire about lessons just email, I’m happy to answer any questions.
