Hugo Fernandez | Jazz GuitarNew Grounds Quartet Jazz Guitarist | Composer
His songs are generally both catchy and inventive, many of the performances develop in unexpected directions, and the often-episodic frameworks make most of the selections sound like mini-suites.- DOWNBEAT (SCOTT YANOW)
Brilliant contemporary jazz...his music unfolds with echoes of New York's current jazz guitar scene, but also of John Abercrombie and Pat Metheny.- TOMAJAZZ

"New Grounds Quartet"The sound of his quartet focuses its repertoire on original material, where the rich legacy of jazz is still present, mixed with other music, in a time of great social and cultural changes, in a world that seems smaller, but at the same time far from ideologies. Pieces that celebrate the interaction between people who share a passion for music... energy and talent in equal parts.
