“John’s sound is so compelling, complete, symmetrical and soulful with just his voice, guitar and harmonica, it is at first impossible to imagine improving it… He’s a great force of nature. John sounds like a big train coming. He chops them all down.” – Tom Waits
“John Hammond is a master… He is a virtuoso. A conjurer. A modernist. John is in a very small circle of men with a guitar and a harmonica. Jimmy Reed, Howlin’ Wolf, Bob Dylan.” – T Bone Burnett
“… a blues legend with a voice like Robert Johnson’s and a demeanor that belies his tear-it-up might before an audience.” – The New York Times
