"The great musicians who bridged the gap between Blues and Jazz and Jump and Swing had unique musical identities, sounds and personalities and they allowed their personal fingerprint on everything they had. People like Charlie Parker, Illinois Jacquet, Lionel Hampton, Charlie Christian had unique sounds and played with energy and vigor. Modern players like Duke Robillard, Doug Deming and Joey DeFrancesco continue that process. It’s about tunes and swing, but it’s also about personalities and telling a story when you play music."   -"Little Charlie" Baty


 
"Far from contemporary musicians who are trying to renovate the Blues, Doug falls on the contrary as a defender of tradition." -Stephane Gondal, Sud Quest
