Album Review

Tuck Andress is the instrumental half of the successful Windham Hill guitar and vocal duo Tuck And Patti. On his first solo album Andress's extraordinary technical skills and musical range are given center stage. For sheer virtuosity few guitarists can match his pyrotechnical wizardry. He has developed a unique style that allows him to play lead, rhythm and bass parts simultaneously, often at dizzying speeds, but never sacrificing warmth and sensitivity in the process. Recorded live in the studio, without overdubs, the material ranges from Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror" and the garage rock classic "Louie Louie" to the jazz standards "Body and Soul" and "Begin the Beguine" to a Wizard of Oz medley "Over the Rainbow/If I Only Had a Brain." Three originals are included: "Sweet P," dedicated to his wife and musical partner Patti Cathcart, "Manonash" written at the tomb of his spiritual teacher Meher Baba, and the extended collage "Grooves of Joy." Though it was never in doubt, the aptly titled Reckless Precision should solidify Andress's reputation as one of the most brilliant guitar players alive today. ~ Backroads Music/Heartbeats, Rovi

Customer Reviews

Precisionlessly Reckommended?

Yeah, it kind of is recklessly precise. Great album. I've had it since it was released and, though I'm sure I've listened to it countless times over the years, when it comes up on my iPod it never gets skipped. I guess my favorites are tracks 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, and 9...but only slightly. It's solid throughout and shows off Tuck's impressive chops, inventive artistry, and playful personality. Why did he never release additional solo albums (aside from a Christmas album), I wonder...

Guitar master!!

Okay I hardly ever do these, but to have a chance to sing Tuck's praises I will (I love P too) but Tuck puts me in a spell of musical enchantment with Louie Louie and Man in the Mirror. I too wonder why he never did another solo album! Love you Tuck! You the man!
