Great Great Musician
I totally love the songs in this CD, perfect harmonic chords and bueatiful tone. I would like to dream that I could play those songs someday.

conrado paulino

beautiful music, great playing
This CD is fullness of good taste, sensitivity, emotion and musicality. Great technique and really good taste.
I would like to put some comments here from
->Jedi guitar playing !!!!
->Beautiful! I found this looking for Ted Greene and didn't get disappointed. Very good playing, I am stunned.
->lenny breau lives!
->Terrific playing. Thats not easy.
->(about "my funny valentine"): I can only imagine Lenny Breau smiling if he'd heard this. Great work.
->I have no words: you're a great musician ! This is what i mean when i think about "soulfulness, taste, guitar skills" ! There's everything of guitar compendium here !
-> guitar, no effects, just a player with a flawless technique. I pray he gains recognition as the superb musician and educator that he is. Genil has definitely formed his own voice musically. Lenny Breau lives on in Genil's playing...

This is the voice of the people, those who love jazz and good music. Needless to say more.
