"We can lie and tell everyone we taught him what he knows."
"his lead ability, his rhythm chops are very versatile. In the choruses he bangs out some good classic rock-n-roll and during the verses he is able to go into some delicate R&B fills in the style of Jimi Hendrix. Nazim is not intimidated by the bright lights;"
"Nazim lets the melody speak, which is unselfish and smart."
-Michael Molenda (Guitar Player magazine)
"Chambi played through a sonic swirl of distortion and bombast on his gold colored Fender that would have pleased even the late, great Hendrix."
