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This recording was originally made with DSD equipment in 1999.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.

By John W. Fischer on 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.

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.

As has been written before Bertoncini has a great deal of technique and he plays some interesting chords, he is quite accomplished on his instrument and the music is beautiful. If you like him, you may want to check out the jazz guitar music of the late Bill Harris. His cds are hard to find and he may not be quite as technically proficient as Gene Bertoncini, but he is quite good and his approach to playing jazz is quite different from Bertoncini and Charlie Byrd. He comes from a different perspective which is no less interesting. Get this album, then check out Harris.

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.

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.
