Sentient Music
(Centaur Records 2730)

"Bravo for the cd ! You do have your very own world, man - great! I especially liked Uraca & Halcyon Presence. Thank you."
Roland Dyens, France

"I am listening to your work, not for the first time but for the first time in the shop where your guitar was made. The woods are enjoying themselves! So am I. This is the sound I have been striving for 15 years! The clarity and completness of sound in the recording is amazing. II am so honored that you included Who Do You Say I Am?  I am not to proud to tell you that I was clearing tears from my eyes while listening to it. Wonderful!"
Jim Holler, Luthier - Trinity Guitars

"What a surge of creativity! From the unique percussion beginning of "Happy Feet" to the imaginative "Sentient Preludes", I hear an abundance of technique and moods. Beautifully recorded. "
Dr. William Ortiz
Composer/Professor of Music

Gypsy's Round: Renaissance and Baroque Transcriptions
(Centaur Records 2294)

"Here's a quartet who can take a Telemann vivace at its word and yet milk the most sorrowful notes from Dowland. The excellent Buffalo Guitar Quartet take tons of care, balancing counterpoint, using sectional changes in color and phrase, and, most important, making the music swing. Bravo. They are learned and loads of fun."
-American Record Guide
