Denny Jiosa / Jiosa.com / Press

“On Dreams Like This, Jiosa keeps his sunny side up on an album of albums that should have across the board appeal among guitar enthusiasts. ”

Robert Silverstein - 20th Century Guitar

"Denny Jiosa is one of the top contemporary jazz guitarist on the scene today... This new CD is a great blend of contemporary jazz and traditional jazz, with improvising reminiscent of Wes Montgomery."

Music Boulevard

"If Eric Clapton played smooth jazz, he'd sound like Denny Jiosa. Jiosa simmers rather than overpowers. Denny proves he has both smooth and real jazz chops."

Jazz-iz

““While some of the players are a little too smooth for my taste, some other artists in the contemporary jazz category make more challenging music.” He lists Denny Jiosa among his favorites in the company of such stellar musicians as Fourplay, Spyro Gyra and Joe Sample.”

Dirk Sutro - JAZZ FOR DUMMIES

“Denny Jiosa is a player of immense chops and fire, and while jazz dominates this album, he is also at home with R&B and pop. Jiosa is a master of the light funk that dominates smooth jazz, but on "I Am Roxane," his fiery playing overrides any mixed emotions about the genre.”

John Heidt - Vintage Guitar Magazine

"There is certainly more substance than others. An example of what smooth jazz could be."

Brad Stone - KSJS radio

“ "The best version of "Sunny" out ! The only one I like better is mine!"”
