This acoustic album was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Country Instrumental (Gameshow Rag/Cannonball Rag) in 2007.
The Mystery, Tommy Emmanuel’s sixth US album, was inspired by Emmanuel’s travels; each of the album’s compositions is a musical snapshot or sojourn – a journey that brings us together with places and people – a journey into self discovery.
Not surprisingly, Emmanuel regards The Mystery as his greatest work to date. Indeed, the album’s many moods, idioms, and references—to say nothing of its stunning virtuosity—fully demonstrate the complex though accessible musician that Emmanuel is.
