Voices about Krister Jonsson:
"Krister Jonsson's compositions are subtle and open. All complete patterns are thrown in the wastebasket, welcome to the freedom! It¹s difficult to have a personal sound on the guitar... but Krister Jonsson succeeds in being himself. " Sven Gustafsson, Gränslöst
"Particularly cunning and rather original variants where the New York-trained Jonsson appeared as a cousin to Bill Frisell and a distant relative to Marc Ribot: country-touch, volume pedal, blues and rock, fast turns between heaven and hell, a lot of humour and a balanced excitement. But is it really legal to use the slide on a jazz festival?" Alexander Agrell, Sydsvenska Dagbladet.
