Michael Hedges: Aerial Boundaries

Widely regarded as one of the most important guitar recordings ever made, this Grammy-nominated instrumental album "literally blew the genre apart." In particular, its solo guitar pieces, recorded live to 2-track with no overdubs, turned the guitar world upside down.
An electronic piece and some ensemble work with Michael Manring (fretless bass) and Mindy Rosenfeld (flute) round out this masterpiece, listed as "best of artist" by many web retailers and other music sites.
