Altadena News, USA
" ...This accomplished artist offers tender, compelling performance through highly developed precision. His sound instantly creates ambience – from haunting Spanish moods to lyrical, romantic jazz, Claude Bourbon provides both a rich evening of music for lovers, and a real treat for music lovers"
“...If you like the sound of inspired acoustic guitar playing from a real songsmith, you might just love Claude Bourbon...”
“This is solo acoustic guitar that is dazzling. Acoustic calisthenics might be a better word for some of the fretwork done here, which at times sound like the pyrotechnics of Monte Montgomery. Bourbon may also remind the listener of Leo Kottke and Jorma Kaukonen. Rarefied air, indeed...”
Willie Painter - Freelance
“Claude Bourbon is a unique figure today-- with his influences deeply buried beneath the surface, what sallies forth from his playing is almost indescribable. The only way you can clear up the mystery is by going to hear him for yourself.
“...So here we have another fine example of the prodigious talent which is treading the boards in UK clubs. That said, if you see his name flagged up in your area, go along – based on this set you could be in for a very entertaining night.
Blues Matters - UK
“““Bourbon added touches of flamenco, coutry and hillibilly music to his exhaustive recital, his sources all congealing together merrily in an explosion of blues-fuelled guitar artistry”.”
