Christian Howes, world famous jazz violinist, has even stated, "His breadth of ability and the scope of his perspective is a very hard thing to measure in any single performance, unless you are going to listen to him play several styles of music, including his own compositions, on several instruments! Nonetheless, I'm sure he will impress anyone by any ONE instrument, playing any ONE style that he has studied."
