Jartse Tuominen - Guitar Wizard
”How to describe his music? Let's assume that Billy Cobham, Steve Gadd, Al Di Meola, Steve Vai, Steve Morse, Billy Sheehan and Jaco Pastorius were in the audience at a Jartse Tuominen gig. They would certainly recognize aspects of their own music, but they wouldn't be able to keep their butts on the bench.” (Review of Jartse´s CD Time of Change by Guitar Nine News for June, 2008)
Jartse Tuominen is an exceptionally talented guitarist, amazing composer and a producer with devotion and style. With his unique touch he is able to give a soul to his guitar in many different ways, varying from rock to jazz.
