"I like the bossas, especially Jobim, and this
is excellent! I always liked that intro to Corcovado, and played a simple single line,
but now you've made it better. I really feel the few tunes I can play have really
improved with your arrangements and tips on how to go about it."
"I had my son listen to your delightful rendition
of Black Orpheus on guitar. I'm always so taken with the beauty of your playing. I know a
work of art is good when it excites emotion; when it stirs something inside a person. I
listen to your playing over and over because I enjoy it and because I want to try and
capture that same feeling in my own playing.
"Over the Rainbow and Round Midnight will become
part of my permanent solo repertoire, and I will be proud to confess that I had learned these
arrangements from an exceptional guitarist and teacher, Mark Stefani."
"Beautiful arrangement of Both Sides Now.
I think Joni Mitchell's open/alt tuning approach works very well for her vocal/stage
presentation style. Your key choice has a big sound and flows like a vocal piece."
