We gave it an A-

The late guitarist and folklorist’s final album is a poignant summation of his eccentric approach to vernacular music. Bathed in reverb, his acoustic guitar ranges from primly traditional plucking on standards like Gershwin’s ”Summertime” to haunted abstractions that tantalizingly bounce around coherent melodies. It sounds spacey and ancient at the same time — and it’s all oddly moving.
