“Hatfield’s music. . . consistently defies conventional labeling. . . .  melody and consonance reign supreme in Hatfield’s work. . . .  both personal and eloquent. . . .  Ken continues to mature as a unique voice on his instrument.”

–excerpt, Jim Fisch review of Explorations for Solo Guitar in 20th Century Guitar Magazine, “The Jazz Box,” October 1999


“I like the compositions, especially the sonata, a major undertaking, very well executed.  The playing is damned good too.”

–Charlie Byrd
