4.0 out of 5 stars Touching magic July 28, 2009
By IRate
Format:Audio CD
The Jazz guitar virtuoso's accomplished technique was apparent from the start, as marvelous cover songs and arresting originals transported and extended what the sub-genre usually portrayed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Truly a Magic Touch September 10, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Stanley Jordan is one of the most gifted jazz guitarists out there. Every song is uniquely stamped with his personality and talent. No matter if it is a mainstream jazz standard like Freddie Freeloader or a cover of a Beatles hit like Eleanor Rigby, each song is crafted carefully to commuicate his vision with the listener.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best! December 15, 2004
By Peter
Format:Audio CD
This album is a timeless piece of music. I somewhat agree with the reviewers in regards to the marketing efforts of Stanley, etc... He had not been given an appropriate exposure by publicity...It's a shame, since this guitarist is definately one of the best (if not the best) of all time.

I know a lot of people say he plays "too clean" almoast with no human touch. It somewhat is true, since the guitar he plays is different from all other guitars out there, giving a specific "synthezised" sound, or very clean sound.

However, the phrases of his playing are simply incredible! And how about playing 2 guitarists at once! Just think about what he achieved for this instrument...

Simply, buy his album - you will see it by yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jordan Amazes with Cover of Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby" December 8, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Stanley Jordan's cover of the famous Beatles' tune is simply incredible. It's difficult to keep in mind that there is only one guitar playing; such is the genius of Stanley Jordan. He takes two-hand tapping technique to a new level on the first cut. The only downside is that the rest of the album pales in comparison, even though it's still quite good.

5.0 out of 5 stars "MAGIC INDEED" August 4, 2000
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
Every great musician has his or her own unique quality that sets them apart from all their peers. Thelonious Monk had his baffling style of piano playing, Jimi Hendrix made distortion in his Fender Strat a trademark, recording artists Take 6 made six part harmony appear simple. Now there's yet another name to add to the list of extraordinary talents--Stanley Jordan. "Magic Touch" is appropiately named. From the moment it begins with the colossal remake of 'The Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby", you are introduced to the ridiculous skills of Jordan. The sounds of what could easily be mistaken for 2 or 3 guitars have all derived from one. His display of talent continues on tracks like "'Round Midnight" (my personal favorite) and "Lady of My Life". If you are a serious jazz lover or even a casual listener, "Magic Touch" is a must have. A sparkling debut album for one of the most amazing guitar players I have ever heard.
