Let It Be Sun – A piece by Gabriel Kazz for Bert Jansch
Somehow, I have had the incredible honour to be a part of Around the World in 80 Plays, and to play my piece Let It Be Sun in homage to one of my idols. I feel that Bert’s work is dredged in a kind of ‘mystique” hard to describe. It is thought-provoking music. Not only from the beauty of his compositions and lyrics; from a guitarist’s point of view, his work is dredged in a kind of “mystique” hard to describe. When you play something by Bert on your instrument, it’s as if you are witnessing a kind of forgotten, magical language unfolding under your fingers. It’s mysterious and fantastic.
