WelcomeA New Day is a tremendous opportunity for fans of the craft to experience one of the genres up-and-coming talents. The songs are exciting and boundary-pushing, serving as cogent examples of Sargents ability both as a guitarist and as a pure composer. His sense of adventure is apparent with each note.

"With a modernist bent that encompasses improvisation and intelligent charts, the Boston-based Sargent delivers the goods and then some".
-Mark F. Turner, All About Jazz
"Sargents musicality is asymmetrical parts beauty and power. He also incorporates melodic hooks into the mix, where superior technique, cunning interactions, memorable song-forms and seething solo jaunts attain a near-flawless symmetrical presence.
-Glenn Astarita, jazzreview.com
His compositional originality is matched by his incisive playing.
