Jon McCartan / Press

“…the fact remains Nightshade is a remarkable album. It’s not just the superior quality of playing...nor the attention to detail in the arrangements…or even the cavalcade of stars gracing the album-Page McConnell, John (Jon) McCartan, Erik Lawrence, etc. It is all of things and none of them.”

“Gordon Stone accompanied by Jon McCartan on bass and Vinnie Amico on djembe. Stone has an uncanny ability to find great young bass players and McCartan was no exception. Playing upright,his notes were sure and comforting-Amico had a big smile on his face.”
