Doug Hewitt: Guestbook

Nancy Schoenewolf

This is the third CD by ‪Doug Hewitt‬, and definitely the best. He has taken his musical influences and talent to new levels, creating a rich sound that is both familiar and novel. Each time I listen to this CD I hear something new, some nuance that enhances the meaning of the whole. Doug is truly a master musician in all ways- in composition, musicianship, and production.

Over the years I have been amazed & delighted to watch Doug's material grow in both complexity and accessibility. He has a vision all his own, and this album is a great leap forward. It rocks. It swings. It's challenging. It's thought provoking. It's romantic. It's fun. I'm dancin' round my kitchen. No really!

Over the last several days I have been listening to Doug Hewitt's new CD Roots In The Sky. First things first... I love it, all of the music contained on the CD is performed by Doug with an ensemble of incredible musicians! It is bright, melodic and very satisfying. After a good listen I was craving to hear even more. Roots In The Sky is definitely NOT fusion, it is Doug's unique style which is a meticulous blend of Jazz and Rock with an occasional touch of folk. The Ethereal quality of the vocals and the tight down to earth instrumentation has Roots In The Sky clearly living up to its title! It is truly a musical love fest for my ears! I encourage anyone who enjoys a nice balanced Jazz or Rock experience to buy or download the CD which is available from places like Amazon, CD Baby and itunes.

Simply put, Doug's music is timeless
Doug Hewitt never ceases to amaze me; not only is he an incredible recording engineer, he is an accomplished performer, singer, composer, lyricist, and album designer. When I first listened to the album, I listened without looking at the titles, notes or album cover and made my own notes. His title song struck me as my favorite; and if you like John Lennon, you'll definitely hear his influence on the first track. Simply put, Doug's music is timeless and a must to anyone's rock/jazz music library.

After I bought Picasso Tomato and LOVED IT I came to hear you perform in Northampton last week. The Doug Hewitt Group was GREAT! So I bought another copy of Picasso Tomato at the show for my girlfriend. Now she can't wait to hear you play live. The Doug Hewitt Group is my new favorite band from Massachusetts!!

I finally got a chance to really enjoy your Picasso Tomato CD while photo editing yesterday. Nice work!! WOW. You are a gifted man. I am especially fond of Antarian Blues, Holes In Heaven and Relativity. The production is amazing too.

Picasso Tomato has been in and out and back in my CD player for almost a year now. I just wanted to write to tell you what a great album this is! The songs are imaginative and deep. The musicianship is stellar. The lyrics and vocals are topnotch. And the guitar, saxophone and violin solos totally rock. I'm giving this album 5 stars.


March 24, 2008

I like Antarian Blues a lot! Looking forward to hearing more live some day.

From Doug Hewitt we once again get killer instrumentals and great singing and songwriting with his latest album Picasso Tomato. This is a classic.

I just had to write about the Doug Hewitt Group show to say the band was fabulous. Doug's guitar playing and singing were simply amazing. Nancy's harmonies really enhanced the sound and the whole band rocked! More!

Doug, you're one of the very few (as in, I can count 'em on one hand) artists on AirPlay Direct I considered worth a website visit. Keep on!

I can't figure out why Doug Hewitt isn't wth a major record label. Picasso Tomato is amazing. Like a jazzy Pink Floyd. This CD is for people who really listen to music.

great music!!!

Powerful CD on many levels.
Just listen to jazzy, rock music. Or delve into the many layers of instruments and vocals, not to mention the incredible lyrics that really mean something. Anyway you look at it (or listen to it) it's great.

 A stunning, powerful, serious concept album.
Unbelievably heavily profoundly pithily electrically rockingly great stuff. Beautiful writing and playing; equally beautiful production values. The power and sheen of "Holes in Heaven" ("what do you exist for?") brought tears to my eyes. It's not lightweight stuff; an album that demands attention and thought for its sense of wonder and regret, cosmic consciousness and human pain. It's the most moving and thought-provoking thing I've heard in a long time. BUY IT, know you've supported a great artist with a few measley bucks ... and keep listening!

Picasso Tomato is a magnum opus!!!
Awesome music. Walks the fine line between rock and jazz. Incredible detail in every song, without being overdone or overproduced. The lyrics actually make sense, which is rare in music these days. Everthing just fits together. It's great music, all the way through!! My favorites are Antarian Blues and Crystal Ball. Picasso Tomato is pretty cool too. But they're all great!!
