Rave Reviews

“[George Benson] can achieve more variety of texture with his thumb than some manage with all 4 fingers...For 2 ecstatic hours the years rolled away, the audience of 50-somethings forgot their mortgages and kids and rocked triumphantly in the aisles.”—The Telegraph

Andreas Varady is a teenage jazz guitar sensation managed by the legendary Quincy Jones. “It’s not just his ability to move around the fretboard that’s thrilling; it’s his feeling for the music, his harmonic awareness, and all-round musicality.”—The Herald
