Up Close & Personal is Vicki Genfan's third available release. The double CD features the first disk of original instrumentals, titled Up Close, and a second, vocal-based disk, called Personal. Each disc contains a QuickTime video, showing clips of recording sessions and snapshots of Genfan as well as of the other recording artists. The double-CD features both Genfan's guitar virtuosity as well as her singer-songwriter abilities. Most of the songs are recorded with accompanying musicians.[1]
