“I first met Henry Acker when he was 8. He was sitting in the front seats with his family at the Regattabar in Boston. I asked him if he played and if he wanted to sit in. He grabbed Vinny’s guitar and played Nuages to a standing ovation and many tears were flowing. It was a special moment. What a talent. He is on his way to being one of the greats. The future of jazz guitar is in good hands.” Frank Vignola


I have followed Henry's career for many years. He started out as a really talented kid and has become such a great guitarist. - Josco Stephan
