“Michael Manson, from first-touch, has an uplifting spirituality to his approach, which sensitizes the temperament of the listener. Each melodic tone signifies a gentle calmness, similar to a wave�s final act of existence. This peaceable guitarist is grounded, not only in his craft�s prowess, but his life�s values. Mr. Manson, on all accounts, is that stable force one yearns to embrace. One of the many strong vibes you get with Mr. Manson is his drive for really profound music--music that shakes the memories and stimulates the senses, for the passion of his sound to communicate and celebrate life is that light at the end of his process. This theory is never so evident than with the intro spin �Bring It On,� on the current release of Up Front. For while you�re involved in the full experience of this cut, you�re in �his� groove! The bass is full of vibrant soul, as it simmers the R&B influence in the jazz mindset.”
