Solo guitar concert 2009  - 10th Anniversary in Tallinn, Estonia

Here, There and Everywhere VACV-1001 1992 release


The premier guitarist renders popular tunes and jazz standards with an uncommon finesse that highlights the acoustic purity of the classical nylon string instrument. From Jobim to the Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Burt Bacharach and Thelonious Monk, Kawasaki weaves his master touch into the fabric of familiar melodies, making them his own. A solo guitar triumph! - Bill Milkowski - Jazziz –



"My Reverie" VACV-1005 1993 release


Internationally popular guitarist follow-up to the acoustic solo smash "Here, There and Everywhere". The release incorporates synthesizers as well in a tribute to some of his century's finest composer. Entirely performed and arranged by Kawasaki this brilliant collection was inspired by the performances of the legendary pianist, the late Bill Evans and features the music of Ravel, Debussy and Gershwin.

"Kawasaki offers heartfelt tributes...with taste, imagination and passion." - JazzTimes -



E: Relaxing Guitar Solo VACV-1042 2002 release


Superb guitarist Ryo Kawasaki treats listeners to an album of solo acoustic guitar. There are many different sources for the material he has selected, including Antonio Carlos Jobim, Duke Ellington, and Stevie Wonder, as well as his own composing pen. But there is a thread common to all the tunes: each is given a virtuoso performance by Kawasaki. Kawasaki seems determined to keep matters simple, avoiding heavy chordal smears. This technique allows each note to come through with stunning clarity, allowing one to enjoy it individually, as well a piece of the musical phrase of which it is a part. It's hard to believe that Kawasaki is using an acoustic guitar -- Spanish made, nylon stringed -- given how seamless his playing is. It will be difficult to find a recent solo guitar album that is as satisfying as this one is. Highly recommended. - Dave Nathan, All Music Guide -
