Album

Diary is the second album by American guitarist and composer Ralph Towner recorded in 1973 and released on the ECM label. Adler awarded the album 3 stars, stating, It's a solo performance with a twist: Towner plays not only 12-string and classical guitars, but also very competent piano. Towner accompanies himself via overdubs, playing both guitar and piano for an effect vaguely reminiscent of Bill Evans' Conversations with Myself. It's a solo performance with a twist: Towner plays not only 12-string and classical guitars, but also very competent piano. Only Entry in a Diary and Mon Enfant are unaccompanied guitar solos the latter, a traditional melody, is also the sole non-original. On four of the remaining six tracks, Towner accompanies himself via overdubs, playing both guitar and piano for an effect vaguely reminiscent of Bill Evans' Conversations With Myself.

Diary is for the most part played solely by Ralph Towner himself and whilst the classical guitar playing is the trademark sound of Towner, the piano and keyboards are much more evident on Diary and by far play the biggest influence to the album. There are four tracks that really standout here, the opening Dark Spirit which sets.

Even in the context of Towner's brilliant career, Diary is an outstanding album - one of the four or five masterpieces in Towner's solo oeuvre. It's an astonishingly intimate album, almost private and hermetic as it drills down through layers of gorgeous melody to the roots of music itself in free pieces like Entry in a Diary. This is one of the great rainy day albums of all time, featuring probing dialogues between Towner's guitar and piano, with occasional percussion
