Editorial Reviews

"The Monet of Classical Guitar...a master colorist." Atlanta Journal

Renowned classical guitarist Sharon Isbin follows up her Grammy-winning album, Journey to the New World, with another extraordinary musical exploration, Sharon Isbin & Friends: Guitar Passions. This time, the journey is focused on Isbin's guitar heroes and has a Latin American flavor on many tracks. Joining Sharon on this new recording are three-time Grammy Award-winning rock guitarist/composer Steve Vai, innovative jazz guitarist Stanley Jordan, and the platinum-selling rock band Heart's guitarist/composer, Nancy Wilson, among others.

4.0 out of 5 stars A new CD from Sharon... October 13, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an assortment of pieces with Sharon Isbin accompanied by other musicians, including electric guitar, acoustic steel guitar, sax, voice and percussion. Of couse Sharon's playing is impeccible. The pieces with electric guitar are intersting. I did not like them all, but that a personal issue, not the quality of the recording. The fade out ending of the first track, porro, seemed strange but apparently is actually written that way. Overall, a nice CD of eclectic arrangements.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sharon Isbin and Friends - Guitar Passions November 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Anything from Sharon Isbin is going to be good, but this time she is with other masters in their genres. Who would think a classical guitar player would record with a top notch rocker? "Different" is what most folks would say; maybe "unique." But it borders on genius. These kids play well togehter! And the jazz vocals on a later cut have to be heard to be believed! If you buy this CD, don't expect to break out the cheese, crackers, and wine and relax next to the fireplace. This CD grabs your attention and holds it. There is no problem with each cut sounding the same as the one before; you'll find yourself saying, as I did, "Is it over already?" I think you'll like it.

Sharon Isbin is one of my favorite guitar players. This complilation of collaborations with some of her favorite guitarists is a real joy to listen to. I could write more about it but the best thing I can state is "Do yourself a favor and listen to this CD".

5.0 out of 5 stars Creative genius December 22, 2011
By Baxter
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I just got the CD this afternoon and finished my third listen-thru. It's simply wonderful. Ms. Isbin, with guest artists, has created a CD with a fresh, original sound that is simply marvelous. She rivals Yo Yo Ma with her creativity. This CD gets a 10 for listenability. While I bought it thinking of background sound, I find myself listening intently with each play. Casual guitar fans and real afictionados will find a lot to like with this CD. Bravo, Ms. Isbin!

Listen to this collection. Then move on to hear her wide, expert and beautiful other contributions to our world of music. I do not know of any equals who are as productive in this era.
