Recent press for my solo record, Roundabout:

Gapplegate Guitar and Bass Blog

"This is guitar artistry at the highest levels, make no mistake. Everything is right there for you to hear. Nothing is overplayed but you most certainly do not feel that is in any way incomplete." - GregoApplegate Edwards

Musically Speaking

"Guitarist Harvey Valdes presents a take-no-prisoners improvisational approach on his solo release, Roundabout, whose nine tracks find him not just improvising on tunes, but
remaking them. His tone is rich, his finger-playing clean and unhurried, and he uses multiple voices, counterpoint,
reharmonization, free association, and a very elastic sense of time to give full expression to his thoughts." - Mel Minter

All About Jazz
