“Tosh captures the complete orchestral qualities of the nylon string guitar with his wonderfully creative, and fresh arrangements. His jazz playing, both harmonically and linearly, swings, comes from the heart and leaves the listener totally satisfied.”Gene Bertoncini
“With his debut CD, Tosh Sheridan has joined the ranks of guitarists who can play jazz with authority on the nylon string. Tosh has a great sound and knows how to swing. His empathy and ability to listen and respond also make him an ideal du partner. It was a pleasure to play with him, and I look forward to many more musical encounters in the future.”John Stowell
“For acoustic guitar fans, this album is a gold mine.’ review of cd solo/duo
By Rick Koster The Day
“Sheridan is indeed establishing a fine reputation for his fluid and distinctive brand of soul-jazz; the Garde gig is no hometown-kid handout. He works regularly with several solo and duo gigs a week, has scored dance productions and short films, is recording his debut CD and, partly through his friendship with Bertoncini, rubs elbows increasingly with the cream of the city’s players.”
“Wednesday night’s show, headlined by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, made that abundantly clear. And, surprisingly, the highlight of the show was Tosh Sheridan, the opening act and a Waterford native, playing solo acoustic guitar.
With the sun sinking low, and the shadows of the trees stretching across the grass, Sheridan played everything from Fats Waller’s “Jitterbug Waltz” to a jazzy riff on The Beatles’ “Norwegian Wood” to perfection.
And his renditions of two songs by Antonio Carlos Jobim, “Waves” and “Triste,” seemed particularly appropriate on this tropically sultry summer evening.”
