We had the opportunity to witness this talent first hand. Fortunately,Tuck & Patti performed in our small town this spring. They were amazing and breathtaking.Tuck's styling and versitility on the guitar is unbelievable and under appreciated.And Patti's vocal range and styling was truly unique. I can only hope to experience this again. Until then, this recording (and other from the duo) will have to suffice. Definitely worth having in your collection if you appreciate guitar artistry.

Tuck Andress is beyond categorization as a guitarist and musician. He is not entirely a jazz, rock, funk, Latin or even a classical guitarist. Perhaps the best term to describe him is the "Total Guitarist"; a uniquely balanced meld of all different musical disciplines. Tuck plays with the mind and soul of a jazz guitarist ("Stella by Starlight"), the force of a rock guitarist coupled with the attitude of a funk guitarist ("Manonash"), the feel of a Latin guitarist ("Manha de Carnaval"), and with the precision and discipline of a classical guitarist (the entire CD). His musicianship is evidenced in his unprecedented ability to take familiar tunes, dress them up and make the audience laugh ("If I Only Had a Brain"). In short, Tuck Andress truly is a "Total Guitarist." If you love the guitar you'll love "Reckless Precision."
And a plea to Tuck: we'd love to hear more. How about your interpretation of Sor's edition of "Variations on a Theme by Mozart?"

It doesn't matter if you play guitar or just appreciate good guitar music, this CD is essential. Tuck, the one-man-band-Andress plays jazz standards, funk and popular music without missing a beat. His ability to play rhythm, bass lines and the melody AT THE SAME TIME is simply unreal; and although each song is technically amazing, he never loses touch with what is most important to the song - it's individuality.

Tuck is the number one jazz guitarist. Probably the greatest ever. At least for what solo jazz guitar is concerned, to me the competition is over. GAME OVER GUYS. Noone has ever played better, can come close to Tuck, but noone can even be compared to Tuck. I mean. Noone. Probably Martin Taylor in the solo guitar contest can be considered close, and of course George Benson can play majestic and astounding Jazz solo guitar pieces ... but to me talking about strictly solo guitar, Tuck's the best. He's totally mindblowing. But it's not only a matter of technique. Tuck's very personal and absolute control of the instrument is comparable only to his masterful taste, fantasy and ability to reinterpretate a song at its very highest peak. He is the number one guy in Jazz guitar. Number one. Please, don't talk to me about Joe Pass as the solo guitar master. I perfectly know Joe, I own a lot of his solo records (and even combo records) and obviously as a jazz guitar enthusiast myself I really love Joe, but Joe compared to Tuck seems to be mechanical and uninspiring. It's like seeing a movie in black and white and then see another one in High Definition Colour!!!! Exactly like this!!!!!!!!!!! I know it may sound like an overstatement especially if you have never had the opportunity to hear Tuck's music. But it's not, believe me. Tuck is Joe Pass but with the enthusiasm, the spontaneity and the vitality of Edward Van Halen taken to jazz. Tuck's total command of the harmony-melody-rhythmn interactions and his incredible array of "tricks" and tools make his music something incredibly vital and vivid. Solo Jazz guitar has never sounded so funny, deep, entertaining and challenging. Each piece is a picture, a painting, it's alive! I mean. I think THIS ONE IS ABSOLUTLY THE GREATEST SOLO JAZZ GUITAR ALBUM OF ALL TIME.Read more ›

Tuck is one of the FEW big artists left to HANDLE the challenge of SOLO guitar [straight-ahead] Jazz Standards. He Controls bass-line, chordal harmony, melody lines and percussion - all done in top-flight arrangements. I would love for him to address the next 50 important tunes. CDs dedicated to George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Jimmy VanHeusen, Duke Ellington - would become the 'Rosetta Stone' for solo guitar in 100 years.

Tuck is to the solo jazz guitar what Michael Hedges was to the acoustic. He always sounds like he's about to crash and burn, but never does. A must for any guitar player, but you don't need to be a musician to appreciate the beauty of this music.

Tuck Andress is a rare talent, someone who comes along every so often. By alternating the bass, rhythm, and lead lines of the guitar, he gives the illusion he's playing three parts simultaneously. In addition, he has a sense of humor in his interpretation covers. I just love his repetoire, whether playing unaccompanied or performing with his wife, Patrica, who can really sing.

His reading of "Begin The Beguine", done in a straight 8th feel (as opposed to triplet or dotted eighths), had me smiling for a long time.

Here is someone who's doing things on his own terms, turned down a lot of money to live a new age life, and creating beautiful music for all to enjoy.
