    References and Quotes
    Clark Terry – “Steve is a fantastic trumpeter and I am very happy to call him one of my dear friends” – “Stjepko Gut is a world class artist whose rank is one of the top trumpeters of all times and I highly recommend him as an educator and lecturer.
    Chuck Israels – “All over the world there are fine musicians who for one reason or another, are well known only in their immediate area. Many of these are as good as or better than some of the most famous musicians in their field. Stepko Gut is one of these ‘hidden treasures’. Everything is in place in his playing: tone quality, pitch, rhythm, melodic interest and idiomatic ‘rightness’. Add to this his inventive ability as an improviser and that’s about as good as it gets. If you are within striking distance of this man, you owe yourself a chance to hear him play“.
    Johnny Griffin – “This is what happens when great jazz musicians enjoy playing / communicating with each other with a live audience in attendance. Two sensitive brass horn blowers, trumpet / flugelhorns, the world renown Clark Terry and his friend, the tasteful Stepko Gut with his quartet. Fun was had by all! Including the public, that witnessed this performance. ‘Hearing is believing’, jazz music from the heart“.
