Peter Jones I arrived at Mark Wingfield through the drumming of Asaf Sirkis. I got this to get a taster of his playing in other settings and it's compelling listening.

There's a range of music but all combines the best of jazz and progressive rock - freedom of expression and arrangements that understand musical form yet aren't bound by it. Four Moons is a wonderful example of this. But all the tracks - with or without drums - show imagination and emotion. Favorite track: Four Moons (from The Stone House).

Carsten Pieper Nice promotional compilation of his previous work to pave the way for his new album. I have to admit, I didn't know him before but now I do ;-) Not being a big expert for jazz guitar, many of these pieces remind me of Pat Metheny. Other pieces are more ambient prog or something; "Quadrants" for example evokes old Ashra recordings (and I mean that in a good way!). Favorite track: Quadrants (from Guitar Encryption).

John Cratchley This release is a total no-brainer! One of the truly great guitarists to emerge in the 21st Century who can cross musical genres with natural ease: magnificent technique,a truly jaw-dropping sonic pallette coupled with high impact emotional thrust...what's not to like and be amazed by...


Ten Shades Of Light by Mark Wingfield
(promo compilation by Leonardo Pavkovic, MoonJune Records)

Compiled from 13 albums (one tune from each album) of Mark WIngfield's solo albums and his collaborations with Kevin Kastning and René Von Grünig.

For British electric guitarist Mark Wingfield, the words “organic” and “electronic” are not mutually exclusive. He explores highly-imaginative tones and colors via his instrument and it’s done without reliance on conventional effects, amps or pickups. His unique take on the guitar has served as the basis for an impressively diverse discography and dozens of compositions that showcase how he extends the guitar’s boundaries, as well as the many genres and influences he chooses to integrate into his work. A handful of the forms Wingfield’s output encompasses include jazz, rock, classical, and global sounds from Africa, India, Japan, and Turkey.
- Anil Prasad, Innerviews

Consistently brilliant and forward-thinking…unique and sophisticated....… Wingfield’s forward-thinking exploration of smart, swinging, and highly melodic globally informed jazz.
- Barry Cleveland, Guitar Player Magazine

Mark Wingfield shifts from Eno-esque ambient ripping rock-tinged abandon... to cinematic guitar-synth. … Dramatic, intriguing.
- Bill Milkowski, JazzTimes

Guitar innovator … Cinematic eloquence... command of electronic textures... and swooping-bird evocations.
- The Guardian

Literally scaling new heights sonically.
- Mark Tucker, FAME

Wingfield is proving to be a key proponent of adventurous, swinging and modern instrumental jazz-rock fusion in the 21st century.
- Robert Silverstein, MWE3
