Album Notes
The fluid elegance of Fabien Degryse’s guitars illustrates the aural beauty of fingerstyle playing, which is in full bloom on his latest album, “Fingerswingin.” A collection of mesmerizing instrumentals, Degryse has the ear of a poet and the visual perspective of a film-noir director. The result is an atmospheric and lushly melodic work. Just listen to “The Night Has a Thousand Eyes” and imagine Degryse painting the skies with his guitar.
jazztimes.com, may 2012

Given the bold self-confidence and knife-sharp precision of his performances on Fingerswingin', it's hard to imagine that Degryse once struggled with these makeovers. "Fly Me to the Moon," for example, is awash with shimmering romanticism; Degryse's version caresses the heart like a silky kiss.
jazzcorner.com, march 2012

Each track is sculpted in Degryse's trademark fingerstyle playing. Each string of Degryse's acoustic guitar has a sensuous chime; throughout the album it produces a calming, hypnotic effect that is nearly impossible to pull away from.
allaboutjazz.com, february 2012

Il y a une stupéfiante virtuosité dans cet enregistrement, un bel art de l'improvisation et du renouvellement. Et ça swingue superbement.
Jean-Claude Vantroyen, le MAD du 7 décembre 2011

The expressive resonance he elicits from these dozen jazz standards with his virtuosic, finger-pickin' technique speaks for itself. Don't miss this chance to hear him play them live without accompaniment or props of any sort - just pure musical delight.
the Bulletin, nov 18-dec 1, 2011

Fabien Degryse évoque les thèmes puis se balade autour, un peu comme lorsqu’on visite une vieille maison de campagne. Il laisse aller son humeur, s’évade dans ses rêves, s’attarde sur un détail, l’adapte à sa manière. Il nous emmène, doucement, simplement. Son discours est tendre, souple et d’une incroyable fluidité. (...) Fabien Degryse relit à sa façon les plus belles pages du jazz, avec beaucoup de classe et de personnalité. Et ça fait un bien fou.
