CD Reviews

This guy can play with anyone!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Punchy or melodic, Celtic, or (?), this guy does it all; and blends techniques like no one I've ever heard. Amazing right- and left-hand work, timing, and musical sensability. This guy can play with anybody. He summons many of the same sounds from his guitar as the late Michael Hedges, though he developed them independently, more or less at the same time as Michael did. But, it's all part of the music. Like he says: Heavy Wood.The simple production style really works. The recording is wonderful and nothing gets between you and the music.I was just introduced to Don Ross's music two weeks ago from a friend's friend in Vancouver, BC. It sure is hard for Canadians to get exposure in the US. I've been listening to "new acoustic music" for 20 years and I had never heard of him.Buy this record!"
Music that makes your eyes buldge and your spine tingle!

"Undoubtedly the finest player of some of the most intricate and abstract guitaring I have ever come across. I became an instant Don Ross fan after hearing him play on a hot Saturday afternoon in a park east of Toronto about 8 years ago. As a guitar-player myself, I had to talk with him about his influences and style after his show. Not only did his playing throw me for a loop, but his approachable real easy-goin'-big-gallut-like personality sets him well apart from others--both as a musician and a person in my books. This album, as well as all of his other albums I own, have brought me scads and scads of listening pleasure."

"Don Ross is one of the greatest accoustic guitar players and composers living today. It would be astonishing enough that Don is so technically advanced a player. But, then you add his ability to compose accoustic guitar music that makes you laugh, gasp, dream, cry, dance.... When I first heard a Don Ross recording over ten years ago, it was as if I had entered a 50 minute daydream. A couple of weeks later I saw him perform live and, as an accoustic guitar player myself, I was simply stunned by his actually playing. A few weeks after that I was very fortunate to start weekly guitar lessons with Don that lasted for over 8 months. I don't want to sound cliche or trite here, but, Don Ross is a rare combination of a musical genius, an emotive composer and a decent human being. Buy this CD. Then you'll know why you have buy his other recordings."
