Roy Sainsbury Guitarist


Cheadle Jazz Guitar Club newsletter

Even though the CD has been out for a year or so, I had reason to listen to it again because the great selection of standards listed had caught my eye. Having recently received some Johnny Smith recordings which I had not heard before, I obviously had been listening a lot to the great man. When I heard Roy's CD it was very apparent that he was very influenced by J S. Roy has put together some beautiful arrangements which are expertly played with precision and clarity of tone and the content has variation with some numbers accompanied by Zoltan Dekany on double bass and on a few tracks Roy has doubled tracked himself on rhythm guitar. I highly recommend this CD as it is sheer pleasure for the listener and very informative for students of jazz guitar.

Foolish Heart is on Crieff Records No 012.
