ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
'One moment you're casually listening to The Jazz Guitar Of Mark Capon and the next you're wondering, "Who the hell is this cat?"'...'Capon offers the kind of playing that is so effortless it makes guitarists struggling with their craft want to give up for good.'...'Schooled by the great Tal Farlow, he shares his mentor's skill for crisp tones and fleet-fingered swing'...'There's no denying the quick-fire precision of Capon's playing'...'His cleverly crafted variations on "Angel Eyes" are quite compelling, setting up his chords with a gentle single string phrases. His elongated tones transport "I'm Glad There Is You" to the heavens, and the same can be said of the sweet chords and lilting melodic lines of "Just Squeeze Me" and "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most."...'on par with the best work of Tal Farlow or Barney Kessel'...'this record is an absolute delight'...'a testament to Mark Capon's obvious talents'

The Jazz Guitar of Mark Capon
I purchased this CD for one song, Mark Capon's version of "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most," which is excellent. But the whole album is that. It is an album full of feeling and rich with surprises, for he makes any standard his own but with a respect for what has been done. You come away from the album smiling, because if it all sounds new, and he also shares with us his own compositions, well, you think of a song like "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most," or "Li'l Darlin'," and you think, "there are all of those other times." You feel at home somehow listening to this music, anywhere you may be. Thanks, Mark Capon, for being you!
