ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When the year started out, I wasn’t sure I had any more songs in me. It had been a while. And I thought, ok. Maybe I have enough now. But at last they started coming, and in November, singing through them all, I realized that for me they form a suite.
So here it is, my year as a songwriter: all the songs I wrote, in nearly the order I got them.
------------------------------------

"How do you explain Andy Fite?...The first time I heard Andy Fite my head spun around on my shoulders six times. ... [S]omewhere along the line he’s learned how to divide his mind perfectly and play such divergent counterpoint with himself that if you weren’t looking directly at him you’d think there were two people! His lines are going one direction while his chords go another. Eddie Lang would have loved it.... And Andy sings & scats as well. And it’s all musical, totally. Perfectly wonderful."
Mark Weber, September, 2009

…”The surprise of the evening for me was Andy Fite… he sang and blew me away with his singing and improvising. I was really shocked... and am still in shock....a killer...”
Sheila Jordan, March 11, 2006


" Andy can put a song together in a few hours, I can assure you, you will pee your pants. First time he played I was hooked.... Laughed all the way home! Love it! Check out his site-- you will love him!"
--Taralynne Maclean (from the 55 Bar, NYC, March 2010)


“Joy is an emotion too often missing from jazz recordings.... Fite is positively ebullient.... His improvisations never end up where you anticipate....” ”He doesn’t play any notes that don’t count…. His improvisations…display utter confidence in his own mastery of the instrument…. Fite deserves far more credit than he receives.”
David Dupont, Cadence, 1992 and 1997


”Andy Fite turned out to be a happy guy who spread both music and warmth…and words of wisdom about life and relationships, in his own very enjoyable way.”
Bengt Valentinsson, Gotlands Tidningar,
Visby, Sweden, March 3, 2006


”Wonderful funny songs… terrific singing!”
Rigmor Gustafsson, jazz singer, Stockholm, 2003


”I played your CD in one workshop in Finland and we all had the same opinion:
your music is something that should be listened to every day.”
Helin-Mari Arder, jazz singer, Tallinn, Estonia, 2005


”With the very first song, he has us. Andy Fite gets right to everybody! Alone with his guitar he sits onstage with a smile on his lips. He has, by the way, a very pleasant voice…. Andy Fite is a crooning comedian with a guitar. A good one!”
Mia Uhlin,
Ålandstidningen, Mariehamn, Finland, Feb. 2004


“....A whole different way to play the guitar, and it’s funky, and it’s for real, and it’s fresh.... It’s totally original. On the same six strings.... Beautiful.”
Red Mitchell, 1992


”Short bursts of concentrated Andy Fite are always a highly effective treatment.”
Christiana Drapkin, jazz singer, New York City, July 2006


”Better than a hot bath!”
Andreas Linderman, Stockholm, Sweden, 2006


“Andy Fite is a great entertainer. For those of us in Sweden who have been to see him play, his performances are always uplifting and enjoyable.”
Håkan Mauritzon, Smålands Posten,
Kalmar, Sweden, Sept. 2002


”It’s always a pleasure to play with you, Andy.”
Kenny Clarke, 1978


”He has a very pleasant way of presenting himself. Always a gleam in the eye, with a touch of melancholy…. It’s charming and deeply serious.”
Lena Svensson, Östra Småland,
Kalmar, Sweden, Aug. 1998


“Dense, harmonically exciting, often dizzying melodic lines.... A red-hot temperament drives the music forward.... It’s strong-willed, rebellious and outspoken.... In Fite’s hands, the guitar is a multi-instrument: zither, string bass, the inside of a piano.... What other guitar player gets you thinking of John Cage? You’ll never get tired of this CD.”
Agneta Westerberg, Orkester Journalen, Stockholm, Feb. 1996, on Andy Fite: Whirlwind

“Andy Fite plays the guitar like nobody else. Long, logical lines and an unerring time feeling, but above all a fresh stream from an unmistakably original melodic source. It’s a fantastic adventure to hear Andy”.... “Fite seems entirely aware of his mastery and this instinct deepens his playing even further..... World class, all categories!”
Bjarne Moelv, Folket, Eskilstuna, Sweden
May 21 and July 23, 1992


“Sounds good. Maybe in a hundred years it’ll be a big seller.”
Billy Bauer, guitarist, on Whirlwind


”Thank you very much for your beatiful album C variations 2006. I found
this music great! Thank you.”
Ulf Åkerhielm, bassist and composer
May 16, 2006


”Everybody loves Andy Fite!”
Anar Tagi-Zade, jazz singer, 2004
