Album Review

Though his simplistic arrangements and often-repeated themes mark him as an artist more likely to be heard in an elevator than a jukebox, Marc Antoine is among the best of the mood music merchants active during the '90s and 2000s. A soft-toned player of the Spanish guitar, Antoine has a gift for intricate yet non-complex playing as well as strong melodies, and his compositions occasionally reveal a surprising depth (if only he'd delegate the drum-programming duties to someone beside himself). This 12-track collection, The Very Best of Marc Antoine, spans five of his LPs for GRP, beginning with "Latin Quarter," (far and away his best performance). None of the rest rise above the level of Muzak, though the addition of live drummer Lil' John Roberts for "On the Strip" makes a big difference, and Antoine summons a bit of magic for the title track of Cruisin'.

Amazing! Outstanding album worth every penny

I have been listening to this album over and over and it never gets old. Very relaxing and enjoyable at home after work or even on iTunes at the office as background music. If you like modern jazz this is a must have for your collection.

Pulling the right strings

This is a great collection of songs by Antoine. I have bought many acoustic albums by many different artists and put this one at the top of my list. Excellent melodies that can suit any mood you may be feeling.

Absolutely Epic in every way.

Antione will put you into worlds you never knew existed. The man speaks volumes with a mixed assortmant of melodies that will fit just about any mood you're seeking. It just never gets old.
