Herbie Hancock: “Julian, you play with heart, mind, and soul. Where’d you find all this so early in life?”

David Grisman: “I was amazed by the depth of his playing, he’s a real improviser who just goes with the flow. He’s not about anything other than making a beautiful musical statement.”

Gary Burton: “We had to do various takes on different tunes, and it struck me how none of his solos were alike. He was constantly inventive but without a need to show off. His way of proving himself is not by being flashy, but by discovering the meaning in the music.”

Martin Taylor: “My favorite guitar player!”
