Album Remarks & Appraisals:
After 12 years living in Madrid, Spain, Parisian born acoustic guitarist Marc Antoine celebrates his return to Southern California with his highly anticipated Woodward Avenue Records debut Laguna Beach. Keeping his trademark "classical soul" vibe front and center, he artfully balances crisp sonic production edges with balmy, breezy light funk melodies (as on the infectious title track, also the lead single), brassy energy, cool samba excursions and sensual romance. Produced by Antoine, Laguna Beach features guest spots by keyboardist Philippe Saisse, guitarist and labelmate Paul Brown (who also mixed the project), harmonica master Tim Welvaars and trumpet great Rick Braun.
