about

The Utmost draws inspiration from Japanese poetry and Brazilian literature and includes a tiny symphony that takes place inside an imaginary lightbulb.

2008 Juno Award winner for Instrumental Album of the Year

"Stone is the consummate team player... always right in the middle with his polished, inventive banjo playing."
DOWNBEAT

"Bridging jazz, bluegrass and everything in between with smart compositions, playful jams, and a great sense of purpose. It's music that's difficult to describe, but easy to love."
CBC

"What roots/jazz banjo virtuoso Jayme Stone doesn't know about his instrument probably isn't worth knowing."
TORONTO STAR

"Inquisitive urban banjo ace launches The Utmost, a graceful collection of jazz-affected bluegrass."
GLOBE AND MAIL

"An intent focus on all aspects of music… one of the most open-minded banjoists around."
BANJO NEWS

Jayme "has jam band fans doing cartwheels in the street and hardcore jazz fans re-examining their priorities."
NOW MAGAZINE

"Imagine a more chilled out Béla Fleck and the Americana side of Bill Frisell and you’re on track."
FRETS

"Jayme Stone is a banjoist who has learned well the lessons of Trischka and Fleck, and has come up with a distinctive approach to newgrass."
CHICAGO TRIBUNE

"Jazz with the verve of a happy pop tune."
ALL ABOUT JAZZ

"A banjo big-wig."
