Delightful

"I've bought other alubums of mandolin and guitar and enjoyed them, but this is my favorite. All the selections are enjoyable.

The blend and balance between Baldassari's mandolin and Mock's guitar are the best I've ever heard on any recording of mandolin and guitar recordings.

I wasn't sure how a bluegrass mandolin player would do on classical pieces, but Baldassari is more than equal to the task in my opinion. He chose to play his Gibson F-5 and F-5C mandolins and could not have made a better choice. He produces the best tone I've ever heard from any mandolin; full, rich and balanced. Any limitations inherent in the mandolin are not to be heard; nothing tinny, nothing hollow, just pure golden tone.

John Mock's guitar playing blends seamlessly with Baldassari's mandolin.

I'm a cassual listener to classical music. I enjoy what I enjoy, but I'm not tutored or schooled. All I know is that I like what I like. This is good stuff.

Mandolin music to die for!

"I just happened upon this mandolin-guitar cd by Butch Baldassari. I'm hooked. I loved Paul McCartney's mandolin playing on his new album "Memory Almost Full" so I thought I'd check out more mandolin albums. I'm definitely going to order more mandolin CD, especially by Butch Baldassari. He is amazing."
