CD Reviews

Sophisticated acoustic studio recording
Niels Pflaeging | São Paulo, SP Brazil | 05/13/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"On Standing Ovation (title inspired by the acoustic Ovation guitars Coryell played at the time), the guitarist performs mostly solo "against himself". Among Coryells acoustic guitar recordings from the 70s like the ones live at Montreux, on "Bolero" or with Beck/Scofield, this one stands out in sound (which can be described as chrystal-clear), and in song quality - most of the compositions are entertaining but sophisticated beautifully interpreted. Some have actually quite a "hit quality"... Two weird tracks (Coryell playing solo piano), and a loosely composed duet with an Indian sitar player) stand out, but the other songs are worth hearing a 1000 times. For me, one of Coryells best recordings ever."
