Tony is beyond the notes. He makes the guitar sing.” - CINDY COMBS ('Dancing Cat' recording artist)
An absolutely brilliant guitarist.” - WILLIAM ACKERMAN (founder 'Windham Hill')
I love his latest CD (On the Wing of the Great Spaceship) so much I am going to feature it on the FRONT PAGE of CD Baby. We are REALLY picky about what goes on the front page. We get about 75 new albums a DAY (about 30,000 total in 2004), and this is one of the best I have ever heard.” - DEREK SIVERS (founder 'CD Baby')
It is a pleasure playing with Tony. He has a great feel, my favorite quality in a musician - an amazing talent.” - MICHAEL MANRING (former 'Windham Hill' artist)
Wenige verstehen die sechs Saiten so virtuos anzuschlagen wie Tony Kaltenberg ...da meint man ein ganzes Ensemble zu hören, so vielschichtig ist seine Musik ... Neben den variationsreichen Grundakkorden sind solide Basslinien zu hören, und darüber liegt ein atemberaubend fixes Solospiel, bei dem man sich als Zuhörer fragt, wie das alles von den zwei Händen nur einer einzigen Person bewältigt wird ... eine verblüffende Ein-Mann-Band.” - MANFRED STIENECKE (Westfalen Blatt)
TK can make a solo acoustic guitar sound like a band, flipping between flatpicking and finger-styling. His percussive style recalls Michael Hedges, but he can also summon the evocative melodicism of Windham Hill's Will Ackerman and the articulate rhythms you hear in Leo Kottke's work.” - EUGENE WEEKLY
... abendfüllendes Konzert der Extraklasse.” - DIETMAR GRÖBING (Neue Westfälische)
Tremendous tapping and slapping techniques, dazzling solos and expressive percussion - touches your lower chakra's.” - HENK te VELDUIS ('Bridge Guitar Reviews')
Great style, imagine Leo Kottke and Michael Hedges playing together, that's TK.” - JIM D' VILLE (KORC radio)
His original flatpicking and hammering pieces are a true pleasure and of outstanding musical facility.” - HIPFISH MONTHLY
