Editorial Reviews

Nils debut album Blue Planet introduced this great guitarist to Smooth Jazz radio. His subsequent tour called Nils & the West Coast Allstars featured prominent artists Patrice Rushen, Carl Anderson, Bobby Lyle, Everette Harp and Kevin Richard. Needless to say, this raised the bar for a follow-up album, and Pacific Coast Highway doesn't disappoint. Guest vocals by Chante Moore and Siedah Garrett, plus contributions from a host of seasoned jazz session players have provided Smooth Jazz radio with several must play tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique Sound May 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I can't believe I'm the first person to review "Nils" on Amazon. I have to admit I knew almost nothing about this guy until a few weeks ago. This is basically slow and mid tempo smooth jazz guitar with a very unique sound. Guest players like Paul Jackson, Jr., Gerald Albright, Steve Ferrone and Alex Acuna blend seamlessly into the mix. The only throw-away is a cover of the old Carol King song "You've Got a Friend" played with a drum machine, which could easily have been omitted. You can hear shades of other artists like Larry Carlton, Peter White and Chieli Minucci with a definite West Coast flavor. My favorite is a moody number called "Sneakin" that reminds me alot of Larry Carlton. The disc ends with a couple of nice acoustic tunes. A very pleasant surprise. Click on SmoothJazz.com and sample it. Highly recommended.-mw

5.0 out of 5 stars superguitarplayer June 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I am sad to say that I had never heard of Nils. I just checked out his sample and thought it sounded ok. Then I heard it on the radio and I rushed to get this cd. At first I did not like the cut (you've got a friend) but now I like every cut on this cd. This guy really lays down some smooth licks. My favorite would be the title cut Pacific Coast Highway and Hey Ya. You can listen to this cd all day and never get tired of it. You can't go wrong with this cd, I promise. Check it out, Nils has come up with a fantastic cd and it definitely should be a part of your jazz collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent technique October 2, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Nils is struttin' his stuff on this album. He is obviously an incredible guitar talent. He employs many different syles and techniques. I found the selection of material to be a little "all over the place". The only improvement that could be made to this album, or future outings, would be for him to find a niche for himself.

This album is definitely a "must own" for the guitar lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars "REALLY SMOOTH GUITAR" June 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I just purchased PCH and it's a gem. Like Paul Brown, where has Nils been hiding?????? He is a superb player. The arrangements are great and audio quality is superior. Nice uptempo, slick, smooth jazz guitar. Nils is now amongst my favorites: Jeff Golub, Steve Laury, Chieli Minucci, Joyce Cooling, Larry Carlton and Nick Colionne. This disc is currently # 1 on the [...] top 50 chart. Once you purchase this disc, you'll understand why.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pacific Coast Highway August 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard Pacific Coast Highway on the radio and immediately loved it, which meant I had to buy it, which I did. It's a wonderful CD. The title track is so "feel good". All the others are good too but even the title track has big competition with "Coming Home". A sweet soft beautiful piece. It can make me cry with the sweetness.

Nils is so excellent on the guitar that I can listen to the CD over and over again. Buy it, you'll love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guitar Work! August 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD features some great guitar work. A unique style with smooth upbeat sounds. Pacific Coast highway is brilliant because the song mysteriously puts you there on the P.C. Highway - even if you're actually driving somewhere 3,000 miles away! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice addition to your collection... December 12, 2006
Format:Audio CD
You've got to get this CD from this guy. Every cut is bangin' and soooo smooth! All you need is some California wine and you can feel the West Coast groove. Please don't confuse him with Nils Loefgren or whoever. At first I had my doubts about an axe man playin' jazz on a Fender Stratocaster but he pulls it off with flying colors. You will not be disappointed if you purchased this CD. I wish I could find out more about him like when he is touring, etc...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad
It is a decent album but typical of buying an entire album -- a few songs are great and the rest are so so. Nothing against the album as a whole, just personal taste in music.

Great CD, Niles is an excellent guitarist and has a book with some of this music in tab form, great but difficult to learn, worth it.
