"Richard Kuncicky brings iazz
and American Standards
into a smooth contemporary setting on his release,
. Best complemented by an
evening of wine or a night in a trendy coffee shop,
favorites like Over the Rainbow" and "When You Wish Upon A Star" turn into
sweetly stringed ballads."
Katie Sesco, Folioweekly (May 2000)
"I bought a copy of Acoustic Standards at the Alcazar in July and
stop playing it. Thanks for creating such good music. I keep my copy right
beside my Jim Hall, Paul Desmond, and Bill Evans CD's."
Jim... (November, 1999)
"With the exception of a small handful of other players, I have
anyone else produce such warmth and varied colors and nuances on the guitar
like Rick does. His tone is full and sweet like a bell. His
sense of rhythm is impeccable. His touch is exquisite and his arrangements
are gorgeous and lively! He manages to convey the 'it's good to be alive'
feelings evoked by the sunshine of a beautiful spring day."
Linton Corbie, FAME (June, 2000)
This CD is
just what the title says... standards performed on an acoustic guitar. All of
the arrangements are original. This is a remake of a CD originally released in
1994. Recorded in 2004.

I'm a self taught guitarist, an old Rock 'n Roller, born in 1952.
I started playing at the age of nine... about the same time as Elvis was
beginning to fade and the Beatles were starting to storm America. It wasn't
until the late 1970's that I began learning the art of fingerpicking, what I
call "fingerstyle" guitar... I've stuck with it ever since. I currently spend
my time performing at local restaurants and clubs in the St. Augustine, Florida
This is a collection of jazz standards I've arranged for
fingerstyle guitar. The recording was made in the Spring of 2004 with a La
"Presentation" classical guitar through 2 Rode NT3 microphones into a DAT
recorder. For digital editing and mastering my choices were Cool Edit and CD
Architect. I hope you enjoy listening to this CD as much as I have enjoyed
creating it... RK
