„Roland Gebhardt is an experienced musician who now with „Lazy Days“ without doubt has managed to play in the first row of European jazz-guitarists. Intelligent dealing with the tradition of standards, virtuoso lines, a terse sound and outstanding fellow musicians let this CD be an event for the listener. Even strolls to pop-jazz turn out to be full of atmosphere, expressive and never too smooth. Absolutely excellent.“
Magazine for musicians „Gitarre & Bass“ 08/2000
[…] Looking for models, one strikes gold above all in the area of jazz, which – thanks to the innovative work of Nordic musicians like Nils Petter Molvær or Bugge Wesseltoft – seems to have got rid of its image of ”not dead but with a strange smell”. However, one does not have to turn towards Scandinavia. Also in our own country, one can find young jazz musicians whose work gladdens even a keyboarder’s heart: For example, the guitarist Roland Gebhardt. Indeed, Roland Gebhardt is a potential idol for coming generations of (not only) guitarists. This fact is proven by his first record with the music-label MOOD Records. Gebhardt is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music and has been pupil in the master class of Pat Metheny’s teacher Mick Goodrick. Gebhardt’s immensely fluent solo-lines and his sound, which reminds us a little of Volker Kriegel but is unmistakably Gebhardt’s own refined tone, are amazing […]. A fine, mature album. Awfully good!“Keyboards“, CD of the month 10/2000
