PRESS QUOTES (from various recordings and performances)
"...unparalleled guitar-driven music."
"...reaches further than probably anything you've heard from six strings prior to now."

" that is sublimely sensitive, while still maintaining an undercurrent of mystery with an improvisational edge..."
"A truly expressive guitarist..."
BILL MILKOWSKI (writer Downbeat & Jazziz)

"This is a creative and special collection of short stories."

"...guitarist Rolf Sturm...pushed around the harmony and made everything gel. In doing so, he works toward the greater good and creates his voice."

"I have never heard a piece of music cross into so many boundaries and deprecate every established parameter."
"...words are incapable of expressing the art."

"...skilled...musical...eclectic...unique...guitarist Rolf Sturm"

"Where no guitar has gone before... Rolf Sturm"
