Ben Bolt's long awaited DVD "Taking Off" is now in print. Featured in the menu are some of the finest classics for all levels of classical guitarists. Selections include pieces by J.S. Bach, Sor, Dowland, Albeniz and more. There are no distracting microphone stands to disturb the visual. It is shot like a movie, with the microphones hung from several large boom stands, instead of placed in front of the artist. The special features include an interview about Bolt's first meeting with Andres Segovia while he was registering for the Vietnam War in Madrid on his eighteenth birthday, when he played his original compositions for Leo Brouwer in Nashville, and the guitars he owns. Also included are some of the guitars he has built from scratch and insights into his artistic. His 11 acre estate on the historic Tennessee River, his horses, dog, and lifestyle are presented in a down home feel. Running time is 51 minutes.
