Joe Belmont

"I've always loved Joe Belmont's guitar playing: polished, eclectic, crystalline--and how he always surprises you, whether he's in Brazil, or the Renaissance, in the Great American Songbook, or rock n' roll. His playing is pure art, pure creation, a sheer delight for the listener."
-William Cumpiano, Master guitar builder
