Album Notes

....“Float” is a Janzon original with a spooky, off-kilter feel
where his bop solo fits perfectly. The other original,
“Blue Bee,” has an airy feel that makes it stand out from
the blues and funk. The record closes with a beautiful solo piece,
“En Dejlig Rosa,”which showcases everything about Janzon’s playing
that make this one of the best jazz guitar records from the past year.
- John Heidt, Vintage Guitar.

“New York-based guitarist Tomas Janzon plays
tasty renditions...original territory ...with soulful authority. “
-Bill Milkowski, JazzTimes

“With Janzon's velvet-like textures floating as if on water,
the quartet's music moves with soul.”
-Jim Santella, LA Jazz Scene

one of the best jazz-guitar tones you'll hear....
one of the best jazz guitar records
from the past year. "
- John Heidt, Vintage Guitar

“This is one of those unique albums that will please ordinary music
lovers as well as jazz guitar aficionados. Mr. Janzon’s style ranges from
cool to passionate but always melodic and eminently listenable.”
-Dave Walker, Dave Walker Music, Just Jazz Guitar

“Janzon’s warmly soul-tinged lines over Hillery’s
staccato chords and Heath’s winking, on-and-off shuffle.”
-Alan Young, Lucid Culture

Guitarist Tomas Janzon’s Experiences is a
fine exercise in tonal contrasts. And it swings.
-All About Jazz New York

…the guitarist’s subtle, feeling way with a melody.
–Michael Steinman, Cadence.
