    Product Details


    Ton Van Bergeyk is a guitarist's guitarist. That is not to say that his playing is at all over-technical or hard for non-guitarists to appreciate. To the contrary, his music is quite direct and engaging. Ton has absorbed elements of a great many widely varied guitar stylists and is himself already a major influence among younger players.

    Ton's first record, FAMOUS RAGTIME GUITAR SOLOS (SGGW104) remains a classic in the field. With FAMOUS FINGERPICKING GUITAR SOLOS FROM THE GOLDEN ERA OF AMERICAN POP MUSIC (SGGW124) and his tracks on I GOT RHYTHM (SGGW133) Ton expanded his interests to include swing tunes of the 20's and 30's. The present release evinces his still widening tastes and abilities, including modern jazz, blues, contemporary pop, more swing tunes and even Mexican serenadas. The range of guitar styles and sounds (Ton uses a nylon-strung as well as a steel here) is extraordinary and makes for great listening.

    Review: Excellent musicianship. It may be thirty years old, but this recording presents guitar playing that holds up superbly still. He's perhaps not as flashy or exciting as a Tommy Emmanuel, but Ton van Bergeyk's precision and musicianship is outstanding. He can really swing as well and the overall selection of tracks is a great mix of pieces, from Thelonius Monk to the Beatles. The addition of detailed tab sheets makes this a great album for guitarists who want to learn these pieces too. – Decorum/Amazon Customer Review
