Eric Skye and Mark Goldenberg Release Duo Recording, “Artifact”
 
The set of jazz-inspired originals was recorded in a single day.
August 27, 2015

Peghead Nation instructor Mark Goldenberg and fingerstyle jazz guitarist Eric Skye have solidified an occasional duo partnership by releasing Artifact. Recorded in a single day, the album has a wonderfully spontaneous vibe, and features brilliant team playing by each artist on a set of jazz-inspired originals, with Eric and Mark each contributing four compositions.

We caught up with Eric and Mark as they stopped in Berkeley, California, during a set of CD release gigs. Playing in a casual house concert setting at the Vintage Berkeley wine store, the duo played the album’s material, augmented by a handful of standards, to an appreciative audience. This video of Eric’s “The Bridgetown Shuffle,” recorded at the event, is an example of the duo’s low-key, yet highly advanced approach to arranging for two guitars. Eric is playing his Santa Cruz Guitar Co. OO-Skye signature model, and Mark is using a Hill Guitar Co. Performance Series nylon-string (on the album, Mark played his steel-string Collings 001MH). Special thanks to Richard Newman for providing the audio recording used in the video.
