Editorial Reviews

New York City, May 2004 - "Body & Soul" by legendary guitarist Gene Bertoncini is now available as a Hybrid Super Audio CD

This recording was originally made with DSD equipment in 1999. Due to the lack of Super Audio CD players at the time it was down converted to the standard CD format for release. It is now available in its full resolution as a Hybrid Super Audio CD. Hear Gene Bertoncini's nylon string acoustic guitar for the first time captured by this superior digital format. Like other Ambient Records releases these Hybrid SACD's are playable in all CD players.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic album by a Jazz Great! March 31, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The sonic quality of this album is phenomenal, and that's only the beginning.

Gene Bertoncini is on of the greatest living jazz guitarists. His technical prowess combined with his arranging talent give us an album that is easy to listen to because of its seamlesness, but like an artichoke, continues to show deeper and deeper layers as you dig down. Highly intellectual and beautiful to listen to...not a combination that we are lucky enough to find very often.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gene B. Smooth as Glass June 2, 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you picture yourself at a romantic restaurant, candles flickering, with the one you love, this would just have to be playing in the background to complete the mood. This is a wonderfully arranged and superbly recorded album. Gene winds his way through the classics on this one. Romantics will love this for those intimate moments. Great recording, looking forward to more from Ambient Records.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent jazz guitar January 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I recently got turned on to Bertoncini: he's the best traditional jazz guitarist out there. This is an all instrumental album featuring traditional jazz played on an acoustic guitar with a little bit of a classical tone. It's not boring, repetitive "smooth jazz." His more recent "Quiet Now" is a stronger album, but this one is a gem, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Talent September 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As usual, Gene Bertoncini delivers stellar performances. He plays with remarkable sensitivity, and his arrangements reveal an unparalleled grasp of jazz harmony. With Gene, every chord is an adventure, a profound musical statement to be savored.
