"One of the great virtuosi of his instrument, producing torrents of the hardly possible without spilling any perspiration. However, behind the racing brain and apparently 16 fingers is a mind that loves the evocative beauty in a good melody and can spread it out shimmering, like no-one else." – Guitar International
"Martin Taylor is one of the greatest and most impressive guitar players in the world."– Chet Atkins
