Ned Selfe / Press

"Following up his acclaimed '95 album 'Glaciers Come, Glaciers Go'..., Ned Selfe now emerges with a near consummate album of contemporary guitar based jazz/pop instrumentals.... Reflecting Selfe's mastery of a wide variety of ...genres, includng Hawaiian slack key and techno-ambient jazz, 'Errands In Paradise' is clearly one of the finest instrumental guitar albums of the 90's."

Robert Silverstein - 20th Century Guitar

"Selfe's music is a smooth mix of easy going melodies to help you remember to just kick back and enjoy life...at least for a little while."

Dan Liss - New Age Voice

"Out of the 70 - 80 CD's I have received for review consideration...I would easily place this in the top five. It is well produced, well played and well delivered music. 'Errands In Paradise' sticks in the brain long after the final chords have faded, leaving something for the listener to come back to again and again."

Ben Kettlewell - Alternative Music Press

"Whatever [your] vision of paradise is, it's a good bet that the music on 'Errands In Paradise' will bring a smile to the face of guitar fans.... In addition to pedal steel, Ned himself also plays lap steel, dobro, e-bow, steel/MIDI, and ped-a-bro. However you slice it, this man can pick and strum!"

Bill Binkelman - Wind and Wire Magazine

"An outrageously talented pedal steel guitar player, Selfe also has quite an ear for fresh, original compositions that have me coming back for more....Selfe weaves elements of jazz, pop and rock through blues, world, ambient and Hawaiian into tapestries of totally fresh sonic pleasure.... "Errands In Paradise" is a great album for fans of fresh contemporary music, and is one of my favorite albums...."

Steve Ryals - Planet Earth Music, New Age Retailer

" Lovely. Absolutely lovely....Ned Selfe's new CD [Errands In Paradise] is one of the nicest steel guitar recordings of the year.... It is not a traditional steel guitar album designed to impress other steel guitarists. It is rather a collection of works by a gifted musician and composer whose instrument [is] the pedal steel guitar.... Thumbs up as high as I can stretch them."

Mike Perlowin - Steel Guitar World Magazine
