"Tim Pacheco is tuned into the acoustic guitar zen center of the universe."

"If you want a CD of first-class guitar compositions, lush sound, and a feel-good vibe, you can’t go wrong with Tim Pacheco’s "Of Wordless Realms." The 11 tunes demonstrate that intangible quality of what makes music good. Pacheco never is rushed in delivering beautiful playing that suits each song. Maybe it’s a testament to some of his seminal influences, but the opening "Faun’s Dance" reminds listeners of Will Ackerman in the early Windham Hill days. It’s a short piece you wish would go longer (can we ever say anything better about a song?). Pacheco creatively utilizes some duets and ensembles to go along with his solo guitar pieces, allowing the other voices to shine while he takes a back seat. In a nod to one of his influences, Pacheco handles the challenging "Without You" by guitarist Michael Gulezian, with its dark tones underlying a sensitive melody. "Orisya" is a happy, lilting jaunt with marimba and percussion along for the friendly ride. The title cut "Of Wordless Realms" slowly sinks into your consciousness like the sun on a cool day. The disc ends with the winding "The Foundling" with harp and voice. It’s a close your eyes kind of tune that bathes your ears in sweet, delicious tones. Honestly, this is one of the best guitar CD’s I have heard this year." © Kirk Albrecht
