I just bought this CD. It makes me feel like I have no idea how to play guitar. Amazing, and depressing.

The arrangement of "You go to my head" I think is one of the most beautiful jazz recordings I've ever heard. Really incredible, so dynamic, melodic, tasteful.

I haven't been huge into Kurt but hearing that recording made me want to buy the CD.

Funny, "Standards Trio" makes me wanna play.

It's "The Remedy" that makes me wanna hang it up Cool

I really like the version of 'Fall' complete with the hip hop groove...
Very sweet Cool
Even my kids dig that one!

I just saw them last weekend in Melbourne! Awesome!!
Went to a one hour workshop before hand and nearly cried. He is just a master. Great great tone (much better live), and sooooo creative.

I have had the album for a while. Love the first track by Monk.

I was going to wear my "Marry Me Kurt!" T-shirt, but my wife said that was silly.

Saw KR in London earlier this year.

Great live tone? Yes. But 17, count 'em 17 pedals.

Huge KR fan, love this album for the most part but actually not into the drums/drumming on this one, especially the mix.

Saw him live (finally) for this tour, with Rodney Green on drums, it was as transcendent and humbling as I expected it would be...

I love this record, as any of the others by KR. Kurt is one of those musicians that really sound unique, new, different. They totally recreate a song with a unique style, that immediately brings you to a different emotional state.
