"Dunlap sculpts a dazzling set of originals. Bringing to bear a supple technique and a gently arcing melodicism, Dunlap evokes shimmering portraits... His sound whether on 6,7,9 or 10 string acoustic guitars is likewise mellow and singing, yet always intense. In sum a tour de force." -Jazz Times

"A most amazing guitarist... Dunlap blew the audience's collective mind with a startling display of virtuosity, technical wizardry, and clarity." -Jazz Now
