Ben is a unique jazz guitarist. Fluent in the classic jazz tradition of Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, and George Benson, Ben also draws from the rich Brazilian guitar tradition of Baden Powell ,Raphael Rabello and  Joao Gilberto.   Ben combines standard jazz plectrum technique, with classical fingerstyle, to create a wide range of sounds and textures.

“Sher has drunk deeply from the well

of the aforementioned guitarists' supple techniques, infusing . . .

with many gemlike moments."
