“He has chops to spare and at times his ES175 sounds like more than one player…superb straight ahead jazz playing”

 – Ed Benson – Just Jazz Guitar Magazine 

“He follows in the footsteps of Joe Pass and other masters of the solo jazz guitar…he develops momentum in single-string lines but he is most accomplished in bass-line and chord-melody work”

–      Clive Cooper – Jazz Journal (UK)

“While he is a melodic player, Douskalis sometimes emulates an orchestra and pulls it off. Melody,

harmony, bass lines all interact logically, sometimes making it sound as if more than one guitarist is on the CD.”

 –  Scott Yanow – Los Angeles Jazz Scene

“displays an easy flowing sense of melody...surges live a wave...”

– Jerome Wilson - Cadence Magazine 

“Noteworthy technique, a creative approach, assured touch and glorious tone.”

– Brad Walseth

“Douskalis is clearly a gifted musician, and his fleet-fingered attack often manages to make his Gibson ES-175 sound like several instruments.”

–      Tony Rogers –

“Mesmerizing…an extremely talented artist…”

– June Middleton – Minding Your Business (NYC TV show)  

“It's refreshing to hear a soloist in touch with his instrument and the sounds that come out of it…what is perhaps most impressive is Douskalis' touch and ability to emote a melody line.”

 –  Wildy Haskell - Wildy's World  

"Somehow Peter’s guitar reaches out and touches your soul. The music caresses you like a lover’s hand, and your troubles just seem to melt away...One listen and you’ll be entranced.”

 – Andrea Guy - Mossip 

 “lighting up the Jazz industry with his amazing Jazz guitar performances that are sure to delight music fans.”

– Isaac Davis Jr. - Junior's Cave - Online Magazine
