"Gary Small is a hot guitarist, great music, the crowd loves him and he really gets things going, I really enjoy playing with him."
- George Mitchell, Diana Ross Keyboardist
"...When he plays guitar his music sends smoke signals of sensitivity, emotion and hope."
- Bobby Torres, Former Joe Cocker Percussionist
"Smalls fingers dance up and down his guitar with a style that is unique and never overbearing to the listener. This debut album will leave you wanting more... get ready, Gary Small is going to make a big noise!"
- Aboriginal Voices Magazine
"Having played over the years with a 'legend', namely Carlos Santana, I can truly say that Gary brings to mind not only that caliber of ability, but also the same depth of spirituality and commitment to his art that is the hallmark of great talent."
-Graham Lear, 12 year veteran of Santana and current drummer for the Gary Small Band
"...Small's guitar playing so reminiscent of Carlos Santana it's stunning. In fact it wouldn't be unfair to say Small could become the Santana of Native American music-translating his history through myriad musical forms in a way that speaks on several levels."
