Now & Then
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is AWESOME! If you're not familiar with Alex, check out his website at He's a world-reknown fingerstyle guitarist. Been nominated for Grammy's, toured the world over and is an all around incredible musician. This album is comprised of standard classics like Oh Susannah, When Johnny Comes Marching Home, Swing Low Sweet Chariot and the likes thereof. It's an acoustic instrumental album, but the sounds produced are so right on that you'll be singing along too. Really takes you back. This album most definitely belongs in your collection."

"This CD is -- in a word -- breathtaking.
What Alex de Grassi does with his guitar does literally take my breath away. I first saw Alex in concert way back in the early 1980s and I kind of lost track of him but this CD brings me back to why I was at first attracted to his amazing talent. This is a definite "must have" for any guitar-aholic fans."
Lovely, Serene Acoustic Guitar

"This is my first album by Alex De Grassi and I am impressed with his skill and style. Pure acoustic guitar, occasionally accompanied by bass or percussion, but no vocals. This album of versions of old time folk music is both respectful of the music and yet playful and frisky. Great version of Saint James Infirmary (see my list of the many many versions of this amazing old song)."
