Here are some reviews of the CD.
âJames plays extraordinarily throughout the entire CD, with emotion, technique and taste. He is an artist with much to say and hopefully will get lots of attention from this CD.â Jack Wilkins
"A fleet-fingered guitarist in the George Benson line of descent." Nate Chinen, The New York Times
"This CD represents the long overdue first album by one of New York City's best kept secrets. Jim Silberstein is a great player and a fine writer." Randy Johnston
"James Silberstein's warm tone and fluid single note burning style is reminiscent of Pat Martino and a younger George Benson, but he's clearly established a sound that's all his own with SONG FOR MICAELA." http://www.soundsoftimelessjazz.com
"James Silberstein is a wonderful guitar player." http://www.jazzguitarlife.com
"Song For Micaela is a mature effort, tasteful, skillful, and polished. . . . I¹m already awaiting [Silbersteinâs] next foray, and if his fellow travelers are as well chosen, a pleasant journey it should be, indeed!" J. Robert Bragonier, All About Jazz
"One of the finest guitar-based, instrumental jazz albums of 2004." Robert Silverstein, 20th Century Guitar
âSilberstein's rapid-fire solo brings to mind Pat Martino's fiery intensity, but with a warm tone that is considerably lighter â¦ [his] flawless playing and mainstream predilection ties everything together into a neat package.â John Kelman, All About Jazz
Song For Micaela âbegins and ends with Silbersteinâs warm, organic sound on electric guitar, and his singe-note speed and clarity. Along the way he displays his fluency in bossa nova, blues, funk and the Great American Songbook. He also reveals his skills as an arranger, composer and leader.â Jazz Times, Thomas Conrad
James Silberstein âcombines the warm tone and remarkable fluid single note burn of a Pat Martino, Tal Farlow or Joe Diorio with a capacity for harmonic sophistication, uncommon lyricism and a penchant for alluring bossa novas.â Gatsby Melodi, Afro American Syndicate, http://www.afroamericansyndicate.com
âA fine outing from a significant talent!â firstname.lastname@example.org
âJames entertains us for more than an hour with one winning selection after another. As a first CD, it has been a while in coming but well worth the wait.â Frank Forte
âJames Silberstein has it all down pat on the guitar as made abundantly clear on a searing single note display on such winners as Nica's Dream and Love For Sale. All in all, this is an impressive performance.â http://www.jsojazzscene.org/cd_reviews.php, September, 2004
âWith his recording debut, guitarist James Silberstein reveals a warm tone and crisp articulation. His straightahead session captures the essence of bebop, as he and his guests explore the art of improvisation over a theme. Several originals add favorably to the session's appeal.â Jim Santella
âSilberstein sheds the extroverted cover on unaccompanied guitar in ballad Why Did I Choose You playing with rapt introspection and beauty in a closer that indelibly pulls off his first date without a hitch. It is an easy recommend.â Phillip Wong
âSilberstein is an imaginative soloist and his original compositions stand up quite nicely to the covers of How Deep is the Ocean,â Love for Saleâ and Nica's Dream.â http://www.turbula.net/music/music-review-guitars.html
âAll discourse aside this project has shelf life. Mr. Silberstein can hang his hat on this one and the jazz community awaits his next accomplishment. Song for Micaela never looks back nor should it!â Karl Stober
âJames proves he is adept with both lead and rhythm guitar playing with a precision that places him among the top jazz guitarists.â Oâs Place Jazz Newsletter, Summer 2004
âSilberstein certainly deserves recognition for a fine first solo effort, creating wonderful dynamics in his compositions and arrangements.â Joe Milliken, Goldmine, January 7, 2005
