"It's true that you are a great blues
player, and the way you incorporate your bebop lines and what I call 'church licks'
in your blues playing is stellar. Great playing! You are a blues master."
"I have a lot of friends who play the guitar.
Most of the folks I hang with have an affinity for jazz blues, or bluesers who take the
three chord idiom either head on or to another level. The typical folks come to the
discussion: Benson, Carlton, Ford, SRV, Robillard... I don't spread your tunes around
wholesale, but every once in a while I just feel I have to sort of silence the discussion
by saying, 'You have to listen to this guy.' Everyone is blown away."
"Flawless playing and great blues/jazz language
skills! I love the sound of what you are doing. Wonderful influences, too."
