Editorial Reviews

Excellent album! Mark Whitfield is an amazing guitarist in the Wes Montgomery / George Benson tradition. His technique is flawless, his tone soft and clear and he's got a knack for spinning lyrical, bluesy lines that you can actually hum along to after a few listens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still one of my favourite jazz guitarists. December 16, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Excellent album! Mark Whitfield is an amazing guitarist in the Wes Montgomery / George Benson tradition. His technique is flawless, his tone soft and clear and he's got a knack for spinning lyrical, bluesy lines that you can actually hum along to after a few listens.
I'd be hard pressed to pick any highlights on this album, because I like all of the tunes. Bowery Blues is one of my faves, along with Washington Square Thoroughfare.
His music draws heavily on the blues and although influences from Wes & Benson are apparent, he's still got a sound of his own.
If you like Wes Montgomery's early recordings, or the bluesy stuff by Kenny Burrell, give this album a listen. You won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars His best work yet !!!!!! August 26, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Mark's nickname is QuickPic. This project demonstrates why. Every song is a treat. FRankly I have been waiting for something to rival this CD. From my standpoint, his career and musci took a different direction after this project. it is so good it is a must own for any lover of the Wes Montgomery/George Benson type sound. With no disrespect intended, he takes it to the next level (Now if he could only sing as good or better than Benson, he would have the whole package).

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Tribute to New York February 21, 2012
By D.R.L.
Format:Audio CD
~ This is a wonderful, enjoyable CD. Mark Whitfield was 28 years old at the time of this recording, but proves himself to be wise beyond his years in terms of his ability to improvise and interact with some of the best sidemen on the scene: Tommy Flanagan (p, tracks 2, 5, 9, 11), Dave Holland (b, tracks 2, 5, 7, 9), Al Foster (d, tracks 2, 5, 7, 9); Stephen Scott (p, tracks 1, 3, 4, 8, 10), Christian McBride (b, tracks 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10), Gregory Hutchinson (d, tracks 1, 3, 4, 8, 10).
~ Whitfield's playing is always tuneful and tasteful. It is obvious that he has the technical capability to rip through the music and show off, but he is wise enough to lay back slightly and let the music swing and breathe rather than overpower the listener. He gets a beautiful, mellow, full sound out of his guitar, reminiscent of George Benson at his best. His style on this CD is a cross between early Wes Montgomery and non-commercial early George Benson.
~ In addition to being a fine interpreter of standards, Whitfield shows that he is an excellent composer, contributing 7 memorable tunes: "Washington Square Thoroughfare", "7th Ave. Stroll", "A Brooklyn Love", "Businessman's Bounce", "The Bowery Blues", "Sunset at Waterside", "Headin to the Wes' Side". These tunes could have easily fit into one of Wes Montgomery's Riverside albums.
~ Recorded 16 & 21 June 1995, the CD includes extensive liner notes by Mark Whitfield.
~ Highly recommended.
