What The Media Say,..

Jeari Czapla CasperThe Media:
Jeari is a very tasty jazz guitarist
Ross Porter ~ CEO Jazz FM, Toronto

…Edmonton’s Lenny Breau…
Mike Ross ~ The Edmonton Sun

Czapla exhibits a notable grasp of both-hands-on-the-frets style…
Roger Levesque ~ The Edmonton Journal

Guitar aficionados have been impressed by the range and technique of that guy with the hard-to-pronounce name.  Czapla creates some amazing sound scapes by using all his fingers simultaneously on the guitar frets.
