“Creative, aggressive, blistering slide guitar-and then some!” Slide Guitar Mastery a work of art
Scintillating and almost time traveling 21st Century Bblues.”
Rock and Blues Muse with Martine Ehrenclou – Review by Mike O’Cull:
“Gordon is a ferocious slide guitarist and singer with a live, in-the-moment style that’s impossible to ignore.”
Professor Johnny P’s Juke Joint:
“Jay Gordon doesn’t just play guitar. In his hands and fingers, the guitar becomes a weapon – sometimes firing like an automatic rifle, other times burning like a flamethrower in the night. Make no mistake about his talent, Jay Gordon brings a guitar to life!”

Cashbox - Jay Gordon's "Blues Venom No Cure" CD Review By Scott Thomas
If you like hoppin' straight ahead barrel house, kick'n blues ass music, then here ya go.
It doesn't get much better then this.
Rock City News - G - Man - Not since Hendrix has a guitarist so infused rock and blues with the spirit of adventure.
Jim Fowler - L A Times - His fingers blaze across the strings spewing out notes in rapid succession like a AK47.
His playing is as much a feat of athleticism as his musicality.
A. Grigg, Real Blues Magazine - Thank God for Jay Gordon. He’s one of he last True Guitar-Slingers who run on a high-octane blend of Scorching Blues and Rock’n Roll delivered with both ferocity and passion. I’m always amazed by this Man’s stratospheric Boogies and peerless picking. While others may occupy the same genre as Gordon, no one in Hard Rock-Blues can go the distance with him. A.
