This debut record from Stanley Jordan features the guitarist's extraordinarily idiosyncratic tapping technique on a variety of material. Jordan's revolutionary approach to the instrument, consisting of striking the fretboard with both hands to sound notes, allows him access to musical possibilities that are simply out of the reach of other guitar players. It is in his hands that the guitar attains a level of self-accompaniment formerly held only by the piano. Fortunately, Jordan puts his prodigious chops to good use making good music. One area in particular in which he is terrifically talented is in the reinterpretation of modern pop material.
With his amazing and versatile voice, and his equally as versatile harmonica skills, John Nemeth brings a lot of potential to the table in Magic Touch, his first nationally distributed album (Nemeth's earlier albums, 2002's The Jack of Harps and 2004's Come and Get It, were self released).
