Everything I Love

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 'The choice of material helps set this essentially mainstream group apart... Chako remains focused on the fine art of melodic invention' - AustralAsian Jazz-n-Blues Magazine 'Pure Magic!' - BC Magazine, Hong Kong.
