"The whole of Norwegian guitar scene is very much indebted to Tino Andersen. Bursting with enthusiasm and dedication, he educated generations of young guitar players, instilled love and joy for music into them, distilled real talent and set it on the right path. And his recent CD is a clear testimony to his profound musical taste and sheer elegance in his approach to the art of music."
