About the Guitars:
The first five tunes were done on my superb Gibson Citation. Advantage was taken of its lovely acoustic sound by recording both acoustically and electrically. The mix is about 60%
electric to 40% acoustic. "Nobody Does It Better" was recorded with my Ryoji Matsuoka M-80 Flamenco guitar.
About the Music:This album is quite a departure for me, both in substance and production.
My other albums are, for the most part, fairly complex "studio" productions, and original material. This time, however, I felt the need to do a "one man, one guitar" collection of music.
With the exception of "Nobody Does It Better," all the tunes are old standards, and were selected simply because they are some of my favorites. I hope you enjoy them.
This album is respectfully dedicated to my friend and mentor, the man I consider to be the premier solo guitarist in the world today, Johnny Smith.
