By the time of his fourth full-length, KENSINGTON BLUES, Jack Roses mastery of the acoustic fretboard needed very little introduction. Across the album's eight tracks, this one time John Fahey acolyte even challenges his teacher by pushing the limits of what one set of human fingers can accomplish. Rose creates dense layers of arpeggio, melody, and drone with an arsenal that includes a 12-string guitar and his famous Weissenborn lap guitar. Kensington Blues, 2005. Kensington Blues, 03:35.

The styles Rose employs are diverse: twelve-string virtuoso shows, a slide guitar that alludes as much to the sitar as to the blues, solid traditional Takoma ragtime and folk. Out from latter comes a Fahey cover, Sunflower River Blues, which not surprisingly works as the soil from which the rest of the record grows. But Rose is more than a traditionalist, and the other tracks on Kensington Blues veer sharply into newer territory. Cathedral et Chartres uses twelve strings to abstract the melodic clarity so abundant elsewhere on the record, speeding it up and then sending it into a droning, buzzing finale
