My Classical Way

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Marc Antoine's "classical way" is to take familiar melodies from the classical repertoire and play them on his nylon-string Spanish guitar over his usual selection of samba, bossa nova, and smooth jazz arrangements. He establishes his approach right away with "Carmen B," borrowed from, you guessed it, Bizet's "Carmen," which pays no attention to the dramatic context the tune had in the original opera, but instead becomes a pretty melody prettily played. And so it goes with warhorses by the likes of Bach, Mozart, and Chopin.

And so it goes with warhorses by the likes of Bach, Mozart, and Chopin. Particularly interesting is Antoine's take on Pachelbel's "Canon," with presents the melody over a folkish arrangement that recalls the Velvet Underground's "Sweet Jane." The album's gimmick doesn't allow Antoine much room for jazz improvisation; rather, the jazz creativity lies largely in the arrangements and in the concept itself. Classical fans probably won't be amused, if they even become aware of the album. Some jazz fans may be pleased that Antoine is stretching beyond his usual smooth jazz comfort zone.
