"Lady Bird contains everything I love
about your playing. Powerful octaves, great jazz language, hard swinging and, of
course, your trademark (no pun intended) blues feel. You have a powerful, unique
style that I have not heard from any other guitarist."
"Everything you do is simply another
chapter in the history of jaw dropping jazz guitar! The development of these
recordings over the years is nothing short of scary (in a good way :). Your
mastery of the instrument is so flawless. Your lines and hip harmonic sense
are so incredibly sophisticated there no adequate words that come close to
expressing where you are at musically."
"Lyrical, soulful, swinging phrases.
Beautiful lines. It is like listening to a story being told and that should be
the goal of any solo. But I must say that I am not surprised, having heard you
play since 1982!!!"
"I really hate to say stuff like this
because I wouldn't want to diminish the value of your other recordings, but I
think the Impressions solo is your best yet. It is extremely coherent. Everything
just flows so nicely here. The next time I cross a river I think I will throw my
guitar and amp in and take up checkers."
