Russell created a romantic spell ...

"Russell created a romantic spell with delightful playing, lyrical and sensitive without ever going over the top into lushness. A miraculous sense of balance is one of David Russell's greatest assets, and enables him to make a success of music that in less accomplished hands would be uneventful. No other player in my experience takes less time in convincing you that the guitar is an instrument worth spending a lifetime on."
