I bought this as easy-listening background music. It is that but much more. Needless to say the playing is faultless but what really sets this apart is the tunes and arrangements. You can hum along and the clever arrangements mean that it will bear close and repeated listening. Moreover, whilst there is plenty here for guitarists to enjoy and admire, the guitar does not dominate the music, and it lies well away from the dissonant end of jazz, so this should appeal to a broad spectrum. Very, very good stuff.
