"When it comes to repertoire, it’s hard to top Steven King. The 19 challenging tunes arranged for solo fingerstyle flat-top on "Acoustic Swing" range from Zawinul’s ‘Birdland’ to Mancini’s ‘Dreamsville‘ to the bop classic ‘Anthropology.’ Despite the extreme technical demands of his orchestral-sounding arrangements, King has fun with music by Scott Joplin, George Gershwin, and Irving Berlin. He cut these swinging, polyphonically dense tracks live over a four-day period, which means he carries all this wonderful music around in his head. That’s humbling. " --- Guitar Player Magazine
"Steven King leaves no doubt here that he’s one of the top players in this demanding style. Able to execute improvised bass runs beneath his fluid melody lines, King adapts such seemingly impossible tunes as Weather Report’s jazz classic ‘Birdland’ in arrangements that defy the limitations of six strings and ten fingers. Even at its most complex, King’s playing remains rich-toned and musical and always puts the melody first."--- Acoustic Guitar Magazine
