CD Reviews

His best!

"This one has everything! You can hear Lenny play blues, flamenco, jazz, East Indian...etc. He covers lots or ground on this live album recorded over 30 years ago. Whether he's solo or with the trio, on electric guitar or acoustic, instrumental or singing (i.e. That's all), he'll blow your mind and make you want to pick up your guitar and practice, practice, practice. If you're looking for a good place to get started with Lenny, this is the one to get."
Simply the Best!!

"'The Velvet Touch..." is the greatest jazz guitar album ever recorded. Featuring Reg Kelln on drums and Ronnie Haldorson on electric bass the Canadian/American virtuso lets loose with a variety of tunes that reached it's zenith in the the 1969-1970 time frame. From classic tunes like 'Days of Wine and Roses' to 'that's all' from Merle Travis Lenny covers the full spectrum of music that flooded the universe during the sixties. Being able to play multiple fingered solos with his left hand, comping chords and playing single line solos at the same time is still an incredible feat of playing that Lenny displays here. On the trio outings Reg Kelln and Ronnie Halldorson push the music along as probably the best trio you'll ever hear. This is Lenny at his best. Enjoy!"
