Check out this superb review in the SOS August 2021 issue! The review is written by Robin Bigwood who is a classically-trained keyboard player and works with many leading period instrument orchestras and ensembles, both as a harpsichord soloist and continuo player. Robin also teaches at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and as a music technologist he directs the synth band Art of Moog, produces albums for other artists, and writes for Sound on Sound magazine. This quote from his review says it all:

"Orange Tree Sample's Famous E may be the best virtual Rhodes you can buy."

The New Year 2020 Special Interview at Inside MusiCast!

"While the rest of Los Angeles is sleeping, Jay Graydon is hard at work. His nocturnal schedule started when he was in high school and has persisted throughout his career, but this magical time of the day has afforded Jay with the creative timetable to write and produce countless gold, platinum and Grammy winning albums and songs. We last had Jay on the show ten years ago when we discussed various highlights of his career, so we're pleased to have him back to update us on several recent topics, including the new JaR album, his 'E' Model Rhodes project, some guitars from his collection that he's parting ways with, and so much more.

Inside MusiCast is pleased to welcome back Jay Graydon.

I have remastered Past to Present - the 70s and as usual, the incredible Fab Filter plugins and some others as well allow so much flexibility! This album is interesting as it is an adventure through my history leading up to the point of before becoming a 1st call studio guitarist up to the point when I made the move to producing and writing. - Jay
