"Thank you for sending this C.D. I have to say that this is an absolutely superb recording from first to last. A good mix of tempos and influences which combine to make the entire production flow with consummate smoothness. Refreshingly new tunes, well written, produced, and played with Musicianship of the highest quality. The influence of Barney Kessel and Charlie Christian on Mr. Hough are there to hear and he more than does them justice by adding his own distinct and fluent style. Full marks to all concerned with this high class recording. Best Wishes,
--John Reid, Keith Community Radio 102.8 FM, Keith, Banffshire, SCOTLAND."


"Some reviews tell that if you don’t like jazz guitar, don’t worry, because the sound of the Chris Hough’s guitar will please you for sure. What if you, a guitar jazz fan are? Then it is even more true. The music is not difficult to listen to, but it is not simple music to play. And that is clever. It is as a clever man who could explain a difficult theme simple to the people. So Chris does. Thank you for your music."
