" Swing guitar masters! "
"Renowned rocker Jay Geils (founder of the J. Geils Band) sounded absolutely convincing as a jazz guitarist. "
" The New Guitar Summit filled Manchester's Cheney Hall with the sounds of pleasant swing jazz on Saturday. This return engagement featured a slightly different lineup from previous incarnations, with seven-string guitar master Howard Alden replacing Roomful of Blues founder Duke Robillard. No one leaving at the conclusion of the two-hour swing excursion showed any sign of disappointment.
"The capacity crowd filled the Emerson Umbrella's nearly 400 seat concert hall. After that, there was nothing left to do but sit back and enjoy some upper-class jazz and blues masters perform their craft. '
"New Guitar Summit (Jay Geils, Duke Robillard and Gerry Beaudoin) have a level of simpatico that would make many longstanding bands envious."
"Fine performances just keep coming one after another."
" A live-wire celebration of the warm, distortion-free vocabulary of jazz and blues guitar."
