"Tucker Rountree is
proof that Jazz is far from dead. The young guitarist is the personification of
the definition of Jazz. His improvisational excursions always bear fruit. His
fingers and pick always find their mark. He is relaxed and confident as well he

he definitely has composing skills. This is textbook guitaring with great
feeling. He's done his homework and is now ready for the world.

|Review from the Triple
Door jazz club in Seattle, Washington December
Tucker Rountree is a jazz guitarist in the complete sense. His roots and
stylistic grasp extend from the elegant, lyrical filigrees of Jim Hall to the
blues-in-the-pocket grooves of Wes Montgomery. Plus, he is totally
comfortable in fusion territory, whether the melodic, worldish flights of Pat
Metheny or the quicksilver intensity of John McLaughlin.

work and enjoyed it very much! I like your sound...Keep up the nice
