Reviews & Comments
... I love the way this guy plays!
His new album has the real deal blues feel- I was especially knocked out
by the super-funky "Naze".
(March 28th 2008, Elvin Bishop)

Hiro Suzuki proves that you can be
a soulful blues player no matter where you come from.
(May 2nd, 2008, Shemekia Copeland)

Hiro Susuki is a damn good guitar player!
(April 26th 2008, Arthur Neilson)

This is simply badass. Hiromasa Suzuki is a rhythm-and-blues-groove-soul-guitarist par excellence. He takes the instrument places it has rarely gone, advancing the blues form and making the sky cry. ...
(April 1st, 2008, Retro Music Review)

... Those who missed his couple weeks of shows should be ready next time he comes to Japan, hopefully soon. Until then, though, his latest CD, "From Where I Am," recorded last year in New York, captures his unique Japanese lyrics and great standards with musician friends from the States. When you hear his passionate blues in Japanese, you know the blues, like the human heart that is its vital organ, really has no boundaries.
