“Brian is a very good guitar player, the “Godfather of Fusion” gives him an A plus and his musicians too. The song that I played on, Pulse 49 is a beautiful piece of music We artists have to do everything we can to educate, enlighten and inspire the world in which we live.”
Larry Coryell

“Brian is a really good cat! I really enjoyed and had fun playing on the track “Kinda, Sorta” which is very well done. The whole project is for great cause!”
Mike Stern (Multi-Grammy Nominated Guitarist)

"BRIAN TARQUIN is back with a vengeance and a hunger to help the victims of the most heartless and deadliest shooting attack in America. Employing his blisteringly superb fretwork as a call to love and service, Brian once again has assembled a crack ‘seal team like’ army of the finest pickers and singers to produce a sublime collection of heaviest sonic healing and hope songs you’ll ever be likely to hear."
Hal Lindes (Dire Straits)

“While dangerous and difficult to musically express tragedies such as the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida, producer/guitarist Brian Tarquin’s deft casting (guest stars include the late Larry Coryell and Mike Stern), buoyant yet reverential jazz-pop-fusion songs, and emotional guitar playing make Orlando in Heaven a fitting tribute to those who lost their lives for merely being themselves.”
Guitar Player Magazine

“The world’s greatest shredders doing what they do best—melting faces and taking numbers! Top notch.”
Guitar World

“Cosmopolitan flair is reminiscent of guitarist Lee Ritenour, with a tincture of Steely Dan.”
