Awards

Peter Whittingham Award - 1996
”...only proponent of this instrument who has brought a truly unique voice and idiom to the constantly evolving language of jazz. [...] a challenge to equal for sheer scope of virtuosity, musicality and surprise”. —Raul d'Gama Rose, allaboutjazz.com

“This recording is superb from start to finish and should firmly establish Glasser as the heir apparent to Toots Thielemans [...]” —Thomas R. Erdmann, jazzreview.com

“Supremely impressive, .. Glasser dishes out some incredible piano playing in a contemporary, spiritual but feverish bop-infused style”. —Michael G. Nastos, allmusic.com

“All the virtuosity and panache associated with practitioners on more conventional instruments [ ...] a wholly impressive evening's music from a man in complete control of his considerable resources” —Chris Parker, vortexjazz.co.uk

“His magnificent solos run from jazz ballads to the furious sounds of township sax… music that has become his connection to his roots.” —Africa Review

“A composer, keyboardist and harmonica player, Glasser is intense – his tunes are joyful, driving and danceable.” —Jazz Times
