"Jesse Cook plays guitar, and he does it really well. His recipe is deceivingly simple: some nouveau flamenco (or call it what you will, you'll know what I mean), some World Music, spiced up with good percussion section, innovative, layered arrangements, and a discreet, but perfect technique. Musically, like Ottmar Liebert, Cook throws a lot of odd stuff in the mix, and makes it work amazingly well. But while listening to Liebert always leaves me wishing he had the technical (playing) skill to match his impressive creativity, this guy actually has both! Cook is a musician with a solid, classical guitar training, and fresh ideas to match. I can listen to that for hours. What a treat."
It may not be for the purist, but I love it.

"O.K. It may not be "Flamenco" in the true sense of the term, but it's the best "new" music I've heard in 20 years. Jesse Cook's style, whatever you care to call it, is fresh and exciting. I turned on a friend who is a jazz and classical guitarist; he was so impressed that he started taking Flamenco lessons. The classical and Flamenco purists may not like Jesse Cook, but I think he'll do more to create awareness of those genres than any of the traditional players."
Gigantic if underappreciated talent

"Cook's music is impossible to classify. It is not New Age, and not Jazz, two categories into which critics have tried to crush his great talent. The music is a blend of flamenco, classical Spanish guitar, and Latin American folk music with the enthusiasm and energy of Miami Sound Machine.This is great guitar music. You would do yourself a disservice not to go buy every album."
