    Guitarist Graham Dechter's debut album as a leader could hardly be more charming or enjoyable. He does several things just right: for one thing, he presents a program that demonstrates impeccable taste, nicely combining familiar standards ("In a Mellow Tone," "The Nearness of You") with more obscure fare (Ray Brown's "Lined with a Groove," a nearly-forgotten Johnny Hodges bop number called "Squatty Roo"). For another, he quietly demonstrates his confidence by including a very fine pianist in the quartet -- a move that many guitarists' egos would prevent - while he keeps his tempos moderate and his solos lyrical and self-possessed. It's a sure sign of that rarest of commodities, a virtuosic young guitarist with nothing to prove.

  • Critic Reviews
    JazzTimes (p.69) - "They swing effervescently on Thad Jones' 'Low Down' before settling into Jobim's 'Wave,' with brushmaster Hamilton doing his virtuosic thing beneath the luxurious melody..."
