"For a guy who picked up the mandolin quite casually, thinking of himself as a guitarist for the longest time, Jimmy Gaudreau has accomplished giant things with the little instrument. Although many of his credentials point quite rightly to an interest in progressive bluegrass, he has also trilled his way in and out of many classic traditional bluegrass outfits, including one of the best, the Country Gentlemen."
-Eugene Chadbourn, All Music Guide
"As a picker and singer, he is simply one of the best. Jimmy's playing is always clean and precise, seemingly without error. And his singing...again, always precise. He is a master at blending and has proven it again and again with numerous great lead singers."
- Gene Johnson of Diamond Rio
