    SHAPES is a collection of classical compositions by Bach, Satie, and Schubert, among others, that have been retooled for the Latin-influenced acoustic guitar of Dominic Miller. A seasoned session player, Miller has performed with a diverse roster of artists, most notably Sting, with whom he has recorded eleven albums including the critically acclaimed THE SOUL CAGES. In the liner notes, Miller credits Sting's gift of a book of Bach partitas and sonatas as the catalyst for this ambitious project. "Mass in B Minor (Qui Tollis)," a Bach choral work, is one of the album's unexpected gems. Miller reverses the Mass's melodic structure and replaces the vocal lines with a lush string arrangement, while he explores the counter-melody on guitar. This novel approach is what makes SHAPES such a pleasure. Miller's ability to profoundly reinvent these beloved compositions and yet deliver them with all their original passion and reverence is remarkable. "Ave Maria" is the one song Miller decides not to touch. He performs it exactly as written, but invites his friends Placido Domingo and Sting to perform it as a duet. The result is a classic performance that only adds depth to SHAPES' high luster.
