North Atlantic Dance
North Atlantic Dance is…a step away from more traditional material and towards impressionistic and reflective original material….Quinton is a masterful player who has a way of inserting subtle melodies into the most intricate arrangements. Many of the album’s tunes were inspired by Quinton’s travels across the Canadian landscape and “Cape St. Mary’s Trilogy”, the closing number, is a three-part 17-minute tour de force.

“‘Musical paintings’ on acoustic guitar”
To spend an hour with this solo guitar recording is to enter an emotional landscape of rare beauty….This is solo acoustic finger-picking developed to high art. It’s absolutely gorgeous, highly textured and impressionistic. Connoisseurs of guitar styling will want this. The rest of us can jump right in and be carried away by the strong current.
