“A top-notch jazz and fusion guitarist, Noshir Mody composes picturesque originals that are impossible to classify as anything but high-quality modern jazz…"

Scott Yanow, Author of 11 books including The Great Jazz Guitarists, The Jazz Singers, Jazz On Film and Jazz On Record 1917-76

"Mody came to the U.S. from India when he was just 22, and since then has proved time and time again he’s a guitar virtuoso with a skill set that few can replicate. Here, he also proves that he’s a strong lyricist, as his songwriting takes on a new dimension that, in this very difficult year for America, could help heal some of the wounds or at least provide some relief from all the tragedy."

Tom Haugen, Take Effect Reviews

“The guitar ace creates special music for hopeless times and tosses the listener a rope to let them know things are bound to turn around. Uplifting fusion, this is the kind of music that does well by doing good.”

Chris Spector, Midwest Record

“…This is surely the direction jazz is headed for in the 21st Century & beyond… waves of passion will invade your thoughts and bring you the peace that only jazz can bring…"

Dick Metcalf, Improvijazzation Nation Magazine

“History’s greatest jazz recordings have always been those that meet the moment, using music and improvisation to reflect history, explore the issues and forge hope for a way forward. No jazz album in the first half of 2020 hits all these targets with greater precision than Indian born, NYC based veteran guitarist Noshir Mody, who is well known for leading his EthniFusion rock and jazz ensembles and performing with his trio."

Jonathan Widran, JWVibe

"NOSHIR MODY has a new CD that sees our potential to love one another and make the world a better place in An Idealist's Handbook... it’s a beautiful, intelligent conversation that blends, bends and expands on harmonic ideas." 

Debbie Burke, Jazz Author

"Your mind will flicker back and forth between the sum and its parts, and then you'll relax and hear the whole sound wash over you complete, especially as each of these epic tunes reach a thrilling climax."

Marc Phillips, The Vinyl Anachronist

“Guitarist Noshir Mody is a fusion guitarist and so much more: he is a musical philosopher who addresses the current condition of the world today in a manner that makes both his music and his lyrics poignant…Beautiful music, rich in significant ideas – this is an antidote for the way the world’s pressures impact us.”

Grady Harp


“Self-taught Bombay guitarist Noshir Mody has assembled a magnificent array of musicians to record a deeply personal, sonically rich and beautifully produced album…"

Phil Jackson, Acid Dragon Magazine

“He finds the sweet spot where real muso ears will appreciate his guitar excursions. A tasty outing throughout, it certainly sates the need for something out of the ordinary but not too way out.”

Chris Spector, Midwest Record

“…this group gets to stretch out both individually and collectively in spirited and spiritual fashion."
Scott Albin, JazzTimes

“When playing this I often find myself closing my eyes and just getting into the feel, the rhythm and soul of the album, as it truly is a beautiful piece of work.”

Kev Rowland, Power Of Prog

“The guitarist puts together a tight, unfussy melody, and rolls it out like it had a bank of spotlights covering its movement.” 

Dave Sumner, Jazz Recommendations - 2018

“…High art, as far as I’m concerned, one of the year’s stand-out cuts so far, within a CD that doesn’t brazenly demand re-listening but instead seduces. You’ll be tossing it into the player again and again without even realizing it."

Mark S. Tucker, Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange

“On the rhythmically and harmonically diverse, improvisation-rich, spiritual minded A Burgeoning Consciousness, he whirlwinds together the best of all styles as the leader of a powerhouse sextet."

Jonathan Widran, JWVibe

"...This stunningly authentic, and wholly spiritualized album then rounds out with the short 'Sketching "Under A Starlit Sky (2020)"' which bleeds beautifully into the low slung guitar work of 'Under A Starlit Sky (2020),' with the grandeur of a longer 'Rise,' and then the vocalized 'Illusions Grow (Reprise)' bringing the album to a close..."
