"Ace impressionistic guitarist Carl Weingarten continually finds new wrinkles in his innovative style of “ambient Americana” that is both avant-garde and accessible. the just-released escapesilence and Local Journeys is a bargain twofer for completists who missed these lower profile records that came out at the tail end of the era that the compilation covered. escapesilence is mostly unplugged and thus, the more ‘rootsy’ of the two. Local Journeys features Weingarten’s electric guitars as well as some synthesizers and samples. But the technology used is leverage to mold sounds that are just idiosyncratic enough to grab your attention, just familiar enough to sooth you"
"This Is Where I Found You finds Carl Weingarten in a very good spot, musically speaking. With ample support and positivity oozing from his songs, Weingarten’s velvety revolution continues." --Something Else! Magazine
"Somehow, obviously with a massive amount to talent, Carl Weingarten on his latest album This Is Where I Found You, has managed to successfully combine new age vibe, with the more traditional jazz and blues beats, to create a rare and highly enjoyable journey into something which loosely fits into what could be considered as ambient jazz with a very definite acoustic overtone!
The line-up of supporting musicians in Michael Manring – bass, Celso Alberti – percussion, Kit Walker – keyboards, Tate Bissinger – wordless vocals and Pat Duffey on guitar form a talented group of musicians, each masters of their own craft, coming together to create an awesome body of work that redefines genres, proving that so many aspects can be melded into one to create a new, fresh and invigorating sound. Cameo appearances are by Peter Callandra, Jeff Oster, Steven H. Berk and Reece Bissinger on several of the tracks." --Blue Wolf Reviews, Janet Mawdesley
