Renowned Auburn guitarist Mark Doyle will celebrate the completion of his third “Guitar Noir” album with a concert Saturday, Nov. 2, at Auburn Public Theater.
The album, “Watching the Detectives: Guitar Noir III,” comes 20 years after the release of the original “Guitar Noir.” It features detective and spy themes from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s, as well as originals. The album was released May 17.
“Once I settled on the concept, I started hunting down any and all of the TV and movie themes having to do with detectives and spies, while trying to avoid obvious ones like ‘Peter Gunn,’ which has been done to death, and ‘Perry Mason,’ which I had already recorded on the first ‘Guitar Noir’ album,” Doyle said in a news release. “I ended up choosing the themes that were most melodic and dramatic, since melody is to me the most important thing in an instrumental album.”
