Emory Lester - At Dusk

Emory Lester - At Dusk

Emory Lester's newest release At Dusk is his interpretation of a time of the day that is peaceful and reflective, with feelings of heartfelt emotion, captured in this brand new recording of fine acoustic mandolin-featured music.

Emory's unique mandolin style and sound are showcased like never before in this all-new instrumental collection.

Sailing through colorful and dreamy versions of some of his best compositions, and a fresh and new rendition of the traditional song Going Across the Sea, his mandolin sings with a beautiful voice, with trademark clarity, tone and lyrical-inspired creativity.

On the recording Emory notes his homage to two of his longtime new acoustic inspirations, Darol Anger and Tony Rice.

Listen to Overland from the recording At Dusk.

Love this CD. Mr Lester sure knows how to make the mandolin sound sweet. Love the melodic lines used throughout every tune.

Get it, you won't be disappointed.

"Listen to Overland from the recording Mandology"
I think the sample track is from Emory's CD 'At Dusk'.

'Mandology' is the new CD from New Jersey's own, Dave Gross, a great mandolin picker in his own right.

Lovely. Tunes are full of texture, groove, musicality and general hip-ness, with the mandolin front and center on many of the numbers. Emory's catalog continues to be so very great over the years. The man knows how to record, arrange and just play. And hats off to Craig Miller at AD for super duper customer support.
