About This Event

Pasquale Grasso-guitar, Ari Roland-bass, Keith Balla-drums
“One of the best guitar players I’ve ever heard is floating around now, Pasquale Grasso. This guy is doing something amazingly difficult to do on the guitar with stunning musicality and beauty. What’s interesting about Pasquale is that he doesn’t sound anything like any other guitarist to date. He has somehow translated the pianistic language of his hero Bud Powell onto the guitar in a way that virtually no one has ever addressed in such a complete and effective way. He is easily the most significant new guy I’ve heard in many, many years.” – Pat Metheny
“Tatum on guitar!!!” – David Liebman
“Pasquale Grasso is one the greatest ever to pick up the guitar. The things he does on the instrument should not be possible; they seemed impossible before he did them and it’s doubtful anyone will be able to do them after! Perhaps more importantly, he is one of the purest musicians I have ever heard, being so deeply immersed in the language of Bud Powell, Charlie Parker, Art Tatum, Thelonious Monk, and Barry Harris. What is amazing is how free he is to speak in this language and how effortlessly he is able to create in this world he has mastered so beautifully. This is a very important and historic recording that will stand alone as a beautiful and inspirational musical statement. Thank you for your mastery Pasquale!” – Peter Bernstein
“Pasquale Grasso is a marvel. To hear him is to cheer at a great accomplishment and it makes me happy to have the fortune to have heard what he plays on the guitar. Wonderful.” – Kurt Rosenwinkel
“The first time I heard Pasquale I had to laugh and scratch my head. Those double stops though!!! I never thought that I’d ever see Art Tatum on guitar” – Charlie Hunter
Pasquale’s command of the guitar is truly phenomenal, Art Tatum would have recognized a kindred spirit.” – Chris Potter
