”...The “new” form smacks of freshness and vigor and Roman's more-than-impressive technique helps his lines soar above the complicated rhythms and sophisticated chords. It is a wondrous aspect of the modern guitar evolution that a young Ukranian could faithfully embrace the Spanish/Gypsy culture with such accuracy... “

/ Larry Coryell /

“...Roman is a magnificent guitarist and 'the real soldier' who has perfect feeling of my music along with phenomenal technique...”

/ Steve Vai /

“...I am flattered when Roman uses his ideas with my influence...” /Al Di Meola/

...Roman Miroshnichenko's new solo album Temptation leaves the sensation to even tempers and harmonies, which not often manages to reach even leaders of this genre. However, territorial restriction Roman already overcomed, having obtained concrete success in Russia and USA: became the laureate of prestigious alternative Independent Music Awards, fell into encyclopedia The Great Jazz Guitarists...

/Smena magazine, #1746, April 2010/

“...Roman is a phenomenal acoustic guitarist. His style is reminiscent of the great Al Dimeola, but of course Roman puts his own and highly individual touch and stamp on the guitar. His ‘Temptation’ CD is a testament to his brilliance. It’s a tour de force!...”

/, April 2010/

“...Roman is one in a million: highest musical knowledge, humility, talent and professionalism. “Roman Rocks...”

/ Latin Grammy winner, Daniel Figueiredo /

“...The guitar stands out, but the overall atmosphere is fresh, modern and lively. He may have performed with Al DiMeola and Larry Coryell, but this is not the simple fusion jazz that I remember. It is almost fully instrumental and creates a nice atmosphere for fans of pyrotechnic guitar playing as well as creative intellectual music...”
