As solo artist:

"One of the best players, on acoustic and electric, embracing a range of blues styles and then some....single-note soloing over a slow blues is perhaps the litmus test for any blues guitarist, but it's especially hard to pull off on acoustic. Robb dives headfirst on "Late Night Kahl," and proves more than up to the challenge. " - Dan Forte, Vintage Guitar Magazine, Nov 2017

"Much of the blues press places Robb at the top of the heap of acoustic and electric pickers globally....a force to be reckoned with. " - Tee Watts, Blues Blast Magazine, July 2017

"Our Blues Matters critique of Cool On The Bloom...no better way to start than with "Soc Hop," a nifty-fingered jazz-country tune that show he’s master of what he does...this man’s articulate playing is perfect, and I really do mean perfect, this music is addictive." - Pete Innes, Blues Matters, Feb 2017

"Finger gawkers flood to his shows. and many a budding guitarist will love Cool On The Bloom for its unbridled transcendent fretboard mastery. Unquestionably, Robb ranks right up there with the heavy hitters, a player of dazzling skill and technique." - Frank Matheis, Living Blues Magazine, Jan 2017

"Terry Robb without question is one of the finest guitarists playing the blues (or any other form of music for that matter) today...His true forte is on acoustic and he is the master of both fingerpicking and bottleneck styles with expert original and innovative readings of Delta blues, rags, spirituals, and whatever else he puts his mind too musically." - Greg Johnson, President, Cascade Blues Association, Nov 2016

“Eight Acoustic Blues Masters…here we rounded up an inspiring assembly of guitar masters really laying it down on acoustic guitar…Buddy Guy, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Tommy Emmanuel...and Terry Robb. – Acoustic Nation, Guitar World, Apr 2015

as live performer:

At  New York State Blues Festival, Syracuse, NY: "Mitch Kashmar's harmonica, Terry Robb's guitar share the spotlight at New York State Blues Festival...the best thing about Kashmar's set was that he knew he had a bonafide blues guitar star at his side. Terry Robb showed off fire and ice in his riffs and licks on the moody instrumental "Idle Moments."" - Mark Bialczak, The Post-Standard, July 2012

At Vallemaggia Blues Festival, Switzerland: "Never seen in our latitudes is a stratospheric guitarist like Robb, a true six-stringed sorcerer, with absolutely stunning fingerpicking. What he displayed is incredible for both electric guitar and acoustic...in three pieces, going from blues canonical to ragtime, with a mastery of the instrument and an amazing performance speed." - Riki Bragga, Magic Blues, July 2009

At University of Portland's Chiles Center, Portland, OR: "Much to the delight of the crowd, [Steve] Miller took the stage halfway through the Curtis Salgado-Terry Robb set and joined in on acoustic guitar. He picked some and grinned a lot but mostly seemed content playing rhythm behind Robb's searing blues finger-picking...Robb is a virtuoso on the acoustic blues guitar." - Don Hamilton, The Oregonian, Apr 1997

As producer, arranger and accompanist:

Of Let Go by John Fahey: “What distinguishes this LP is Robb’s superb production. Terry Robb is an extraordinarily sympathetic accompanist to John Fahey." - Kurt Loder, Rolling Stone Magazine, Aug 1984

Of Rain Forests, Oceans and Other Themes by John Fahey: ""Lullaby and Finale," from Stravinsky's "Firebird," in a Terry Robb arrangement is among the more interesting material Fahey has done in the last three or four albums. Terry Robb is his collaborator/producer." - John Flegler, FanFare, Jan 1986

Of Can't Find No Heaven by Alice Stuart: "It is apparent on Can't Find No Heaven that this is what Stuart loves to do - and she is quite good at it. Throughout the well-produced eleven tracks, produced by fellow Burnside Records recording artist Terry Robb, a critically acclaimed, award winning guitar player, Stuart is in good hands, ensuring that each song fully realizes its potential." - Alex Steininger, In Music We Trust, Aug 2002

Of Purple Winos in the Rain by John Callahan: "Produced by acclaimed blues guitarist Terry Robb, who also plays on most of the tracks, Purple Winos feels a tad long at 19 tracks, but its rewards—the album's melancholy opening, 'Lost in the City'; the harmonica-fueled, minute-long pop number 'Yesler Street'; Callahan's poignant story of when a 'Sinner Saves a Saint'; or his half-spoken, wicked account of how 'there's something sacred 'bout an overdose'—demand an attentive ear." - Amy McCullough, Willamette Week, Nov 2006

Of Ooh Wee by Duffy Bishop: "We're in the hands of seasoned pros on Duffy Bishop's new CD. "Ooh Wee!" is Bishop's fourth album and a fine addition to the discography of one of the Northwest's finest blues singers...backed by a superb band [and] produced by Terry Robb." -  John Foyston, The Oregonian, Oct 2003

Of Voodoo Lovin' by Bill Rhoades & the Party Kings: "Under the attentive ear and hand of Northwest producer and guitarist Terry Robb, the CD is far richer and livelier than past Rhoades' projects. It radiates from speakers with a vibrancy worthy of a live performance, just the way good blues records should." - Don Campbell, The Oregonian, Nov 2005

As music educator:

At the 2017 Britt Music & Arts Festival Guitar Weekend: 

"Thank you for your exemplary contributions to our 3rd Britt Guitar Weekend! I think this was the best weekend we've ever had." - Kay Hilton, Director of Education and Engagement, Britt Music & Arts Festival

"I'm so glad...that Terry Robb is available and can participate as a 2017 Britt Guitar Weekend faculty member. Terry is an A-1 teacher, player/performer, a great guy, and an all-around superb addition to the event." - Michael "Hawkeye" Herman, Britt Guitar Weekend Faculty

"It was a pleasure to work with Terry this year....a consumate pro!" - Ed Dunsavage, Britt Guitar Weekend Faculty
