Bob DeVos

With long, blues-drenched melodic lines, and a fat, warm, horn-like sound, guitarist and composer Bob DeVos has his own signature style. Critics universally cite Mr. DeVos' “full, liquid tone” and “soulful, intelligent interpretations and superb, modern compositional skiils”. Hailed as “the thinking man's guitar hero” and “a brilliant, knowing bebop player”, Bob's CDs as a leader for Savant/HighNote and Blues Leaf Records have earned high praise and many stars in Downbeat and throughout the jazz media. His 2006 CD Shifting Sands on Savant was 28 weeks in the top twenty on JazzWeek.com's National Airplay Chart and on many top ten jazz CDs of 2006 and a WBGOFM Jazz Radio “Play of the Month”.

”Guitarist Bob DeVos exemplifies what to look for in a mainstream jazz artist: a rich, round tone around a glowing center, a profound rhythmic capacity, a hearty swing, a creative thinker who seeks the best notes for a given situation and executes them seemingly without effort. He presents top-rate material in a way that is both inventive and accessible. He digs dep into his disttinctive, prodigious style which is deeply rooted in both the bebop and beyond idiom and his blues acumen....the world class guitarist didn't need a warm-up. He came out smoking.” —Zan Stewart, SPOTLIGHT

“Radiating keen intelligence and impeccable taste, DeVos’ playing extends beyond the parameters of the soul-jazz genre. The guitarist plays expressive, melodically oriented solos and incisive accompaniment…his logical, flowing lines beckon both the aficionado and casual listener.” —David Orthmann, All About Jazz
