joaquin lievano portrait Critics Rave About Joaquin Lievano's Ecologie

"Gorgeous melodies... (Lievano's) meticulous arrangements and the broad
 tonal palette let you sink deeply into this music."
 Billboard

"This is not New Age noodling, but thoughtful, expressive composing and
 playing by an artist very much in touch with his surroundings. Try it on a
 Sunday morning and see how your day unfolds."
 Home Theater

"A veritable E-ticket adventure... some of the most hypnotic slow jams ever
 heard in this style of spirit music."
 Jazziz

"A masterpiece... An album of pure musical magic!"
 Body Mind and Spirit

"One the the top 25 artists and recordings of 1996... A meticulously
 crafted album full of gorgeous melodies and intricate atmospheres."
 Echoes (Nationally Syndicated Radio)

"A fluid guitar style that floats in and out of the atmosphere sometimes
 as gentle as a mist of rain, at others like a storm about to break...
 His picking style is clear and clean... His sound is smooth and appealing."
 New Age Voice

"A fine piece of work... Much more flavor and textural variety than most solo
 guitarists' albums."
 Music Reviews Quarterly

"(Lievano's) at his best here, melodic and searing, with plenty of hot licks
 and tasteful compositions to wrap yourself around."
 Common Ground

 Time And A Word

 Toledo Blade

"A great album to listen to while sipping hot cocoa on a stormy night..."
 (Salt Lake City) Deseret News

"Inspired and relaxing... Lievano is a formidable talent whose
 expressive acoustic/electric guitar beckons... A tempting album
 worth many listens."
 L.A. Jazz Scene
