Here's what some say:  
"... a hard-core traditionalist, solidly tapped into his roots in the styles of guitarists such as Jim Hall and Joe Pass.” -The L.A. Times Jazz Review 
“Among the very best jazz guitarists of the current generation.” 
“We hear a little Joe Pass, a little Pat Martino and a little Kurt Rosenwinkel in the fluid sophisticated guitar stylings of the recent Chi-town transplant Rosario.” -Time Out Chicago 
“Do Rosario’s aggressive, staccato attack on his solos comes directly out of Pat Martino while his sense of restraint and harmonic daring suggest the influence of Jim Hall.” -Jazztimes
