Critical Acclaim for C.J. Glass
“Born and bred in Ithaca, Glass is a jazz studies major. His main instrument is guitar, but he also plays bass and sings with a sexy, bluesy growl ... the band was grooving together and presenting a much more cohesive front than less-showy jazz bands.”
-Miranda Pennington, The Ithacan
“If Glass is nothing else, he’s a jazz musician; in love with music and the freedom of expression it allows him. Born, bred, and educated right here in Ithaca, Glass has blossomed as a musician under the guidance of his many mentors and friends in the community.”
-Genevieve Salamone, The Ithaca Times
“Not only [was] the music great but the performance itself was rehearsed to perfection ... The recital was a great mix of good music and a good show that had the audience swingin’ along.”
-The Cayugan
