Reviews
 
"Lilting, persuasive lines, a fat, rich guitar sound, big toned bass, and sensitive, thrusting drumming... The group certainly swings, and there is considerable empathy between the players... Inducing a relaxed mood in the listener" - Jazz Journal International, England

"The technical constraints of playing with his thumb nurture a lyricism and maturity seldom found... Everything about this CD, from the choice of material to the sensitive support, oozes class...His tone is warm, yet incisive... It's a refreshing CD, with no meaningless flights of technical virtuosity or unnecessary electronic processing" - Just Jazz Guitar, USA

"Very good-elegant, tasteful, and impeccably played chamber jazz... Performed with considerable elan ... Their playing is supple and responsive" - Eastern Express, Hong Kong

"Subtle, swinging and melodic... Chako provides ample evidence that there is a lot more to come" - String Jazz, England

"Beautifully recorded intimate jazz... Chako's fat, warm guitar sound leads the way" - TV and Entertainment Times, Hong Kong

"Distinguished by warm, limber performances... Chako has a real vitality and affinity for his material and the loose informality of the proceedings are a real strength... Production values are admirably high" - Hong Kong Magazine

"A fine debut album of mainstream jazz guitar... Greg gets a nice warm tone and has a good feel" - Jazz Guitar Society, Australia
