"2002 Best Of Nashville"

An original player in a town loaded with dull copycats. Kinakin is Brian Setzer, David Grisman and Jerry Garcia tossed in a blender- a quick fingered ace who blends pop, jazz, bluegrass and blues into a style all his own. His forth coming disc, DREAM I'M WITH YOU, should prove ear candy for the progressive Nashville jazz and swing crowd. He has that rare mix of talent and personality, a soloist who follows the " if it's not fun, why do it?" mentality. Kinakin recieves "Best Soloist of Nashville 2002", Nashville Scene~ Brian Blackwell(Columnist - Nashville Scene

"TerryKinakin CD Neither Here Nor There"

"It is traditional jazz in its original form and candy for my ears. The vocal is as earthy as an old Decca Al Jolson offering and the rhythm just rolls right along in an uptempo style. Does it have the stuff that will last? Yes, Hell Yes!." ~ Chuck Chellman/President TN Jazz and Blues Society - TN Jazz and Blues News Letter
