Arriving in New York City in 1996, guitarist Craig Brann has steadily established himself as one of the elite players of his generation. Craig has recorded with Mark Gross, Freddie Hendrix, Greg Tardy, etc. On Craigs latest release, Lineage, his fourth album on record label SteepleChase, Craig unfolds his expansive musical dimension.
“Guitarist Craig Brann’s blazing chops, rich tone, and stellar band immediately demand attention, as do his compositions; Fans of jazz guitar will undoubtedly love this show, and those less enthusiastic about guitar in a lead role might just find themselves swayed by Brann’s hornlike phrasing and improvisational flexibility.” – Ben Mickelson, Jazz at Lincoln Center
“The cream always rises to the top. So it follows that guitarist Craig Brann, in a discipline in which one cannot fake it to make it, would then be the crème de la crème. Lineage, his fourth release as a leader, firmly establishes his place at the table of NYC jazz cats.” – Mark Corroto, All About Jazz
“There’s something for everyone here – and that’s just a way of describing New York guitarist Brann’s versatility. With invention and wit, he remodels the classic guitar trio to suit multi-sourced inspiration…It’s a veritable treasure shed of homage, freewheeling and compositional flair.” – Nigel Jarrett, Jazz Journal
“Brann is an enormous guitar talent…this is his second album and will not be the last.” – Henrik W. Iversen, JazzSpecial
“A beautifully sweet setting for guitarist Craig Brann.” – Rick Wojcik, Dusty Groove
“…which inexhaustibly bubbles with ineffable beauty.” – MC, AAJ
