Technot CD Review
"Calling his modern blend of music 'mutant jazz', acclaimed San Francisco guitarist John William Gordon contrives a fiery fusion that deftly combines jazz and rock auras on latest release Technot. This 10-track eclectic exhibition throws down a dazzling and dizzying instrumental smorgasbord showcasing both Gordon's smoking six-string benedictions with the rest of his trio's solid chops propelling a smoldering experimental take on traditional standards and practices. Imparting a world music exercise for outer space, Gordon and crew consistently display a vigilant virtuosity that commands attention while their free-form jams like 'GVOL' and 'Back Room Flow' convey the proper atmosphere needed which increases the headspace in order to wander."

Live Show Review
"The whole experience was absolutely mind-blowing. While talking to some of my friends after the show, I discovered that I was not the only person who didn't want to get up for concessions during the set due to the fear of missing something great."
