"Gary Jibilian, Two-Handed Harmonies"

"Progressive Music With a Twist"

"They produce music that defies an easy description."

Joe Ballor

"Debut JIBILIAN/GLASS Show Review, 2-3-01"

Gary Jibilian and Todd Glass are both top-flight musicians which are always a pleasure to watch and who are at least attempting to push the musical envelope; a breath of fresh air in an era choking on assimilation and mediocrity. We should all be so brave when considering our own creations.

It's only their first gig as an instrumental duo and even Jibilian admits they've 'only scratched the surface'.

"Two For The Road"

Modern guitar legend Alex Skolnick and Stick player extraordinaire Gary Jibilian have a lot in common. Not only have their respective bands recently toured together through the Midwest and New York City, but both artisits have reinvented themselves, in a sense--exposing their art and vision to new vistas and exciting opportunities.

Whether the approach employs space-age technology or more traditional means, the fact remains that Gary Jibilian and Alex Skolnick are renegades expanding the scope of progressive music as we know it.

"The Homeboy Show, 8-12-01"

"JIBILIAN/GLASS are doing something nobody else is doing. A very unique sound. A very unique instrument. Gary is mastering the NS/Stick, and a ton of people are loving what they are doing, especially at their live shows."

"JIBILIAN/GLASS at The Music Menu"

You have to see it to believe it. Hearing it isn't enough. I usually don't write reviews where I sound like I'm drooling, but it's hard not to sit back in awe at the skill and coordination it takes to play "the stick." Hopefully, Gary will stop by a meeting sometime and drop everybodu's jaws to the floor when he plugs in.
