“I've been enjoying the guitar as an instrument and its amazing artists all of my life. To me Barry Greene is just about one of the best; not only as a player, but also as a writer and a teacher. I agree with others who regard him as a world class musician.”
Pat Martino

"Barry Greene is a fantastic guitar player. He swings his ass off. Beautiful sound...beautiful ideas."
Mike Stern

"Great tone, control and musical judgment, my favorite type of player."
Russell Malone

"Greene is conspicuously enterprising, never less than provocative, and always accessible. Best of all, he swings."
