David Becker Tribune - Leaving Argentina CD

Jazz that reaches its peak! 4 stars. - DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE

"This is a jazz album with a hint of Latin spice and a whole lot of warmth, skill and style. A really lovely album, in fact." - BBC

"Leaving Argentina is an energetic and engrossing release." - ALL ABOUT JAZZ

When you hear David Becker play, you are hearing one of the true greats of modern jazz guitar - an artists who will eventually find his name mentioned alongside giants like John McLaughlin and Wes Montgomery. Leaving Argentina doesn't overwhelm with Latin styles, but injects enough of their flavor into Becker's satisfying compositions to create a distinctly enjoyable album.
