Andy Statman


Andy Statman is one of his generation's most creative and influential mandolinists, having achieved legendary status for his unique melding of bluegrass, traditional Jewish music, and avant-garde jazz.

"Bill Monroe and John Coltrane poured into one person. .. He plays all those just great crazy jazz kind of licks, but with the heart and fire of Bill Monroe ... I don't know anyone else that approaches the mandolin the way he does."
-Ricky Skaggs, NPR

"One of the greatest mandolinists of this - or any - era ... He thinks at the speed of light and can play whatever he thinks of. As an improviser, he is fearless, and his musical vocabulary has no limitations."
-Chicago Tribune
