"Glenn Basham breaks boundaries everyday"
- Miami Magazine, Fall 1999

Glenn makes the transition between classics and jazz with the same ease that he switches between two full time jobs or commutes between Miami and Naples. For him music is what the jazz great Charlie Parker once said: "your own experience, your own thoughts, your wisdom. If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn." For Glenn, it could come out of his violin, viola or harmonica. "They teach you there's a boundary line to music, but man, there's no boundary line to art." (G.B.)

"On "Waltz for Joshua," a Lindsay original, Gary takes yet another turn with the addition of Glen Basham, violin professor at the University of Miami and concertmaster of the Naples (Florida) Philharmonic. The combination sounds great (I may have to steal this idea!). Glen plays with a beautiful tone, and his jazz phrasing is right on the money." Bob Mintzer on Take Four Giant Steps
