"Stern's intense playing runs from modal noodling and aggressive speed to funky melodicism and muscular string-bending... * * * * 1/2 Stars!" - Bob Keelaghan, Guitar One

"Stern is a great guitar player no matter what the label... his music is funky, rocking, occasionally bluesy, and totally mesmerizing." - Phil Freeman, Jazziz

"An exceptionally forceful yet fluid fusion player... sophisticated uptown-meets-downtown music ... surprisingly fun." - Bliss Bowen, Pasadena Weekly
