Winter 2017 Jazziz Magazine review: Calling up associations with everyone from Michael Hedges and Leo Kottke to Paco de Lucia and Django Reinhardt, the Detroit native delves into a set rich with influences from flamenco to bluegrass to the catchall category “modern acoustic guitar”. King is alternately featured solo and in duo, trio and quartet settings, all of which spotlight his remarkable dexterity and commitment to groove. Highlighting as jazzy, nylon-string sound on “Danza del Sol” (Dance of the Sun), King at times evinces Wes Montgomery before he dives into full-on string blurring flamenco.
