REVIEW

December 29, 2006

Don't let the term "Acoustic" in the title fool you. Based on the title I was expecting acoustic guitar music. What you really get is a small jazz combo with piano, horns and various other instruments. This is a really fine sounding CD and the music here would be perfect to have playing in the background during a romantic candle lit dinner with a date or your significant other. It would also be a good CD to put on if you just want to sit back and relax. With very few exceptions the music here is pretty mellow but really great sounding. If you enjoy fine jazz music then this is a must have to add to your collection.
