”Armen Nalbandian is a truly great modern musician with an expansive understanding of the jazz tradition and then some. he has a completely open mind and big open ears. his work on prepared fender rhodes is a revelation to someone like me who grew up hearing that instrument in the way it was used in the 70s. armen can massage the jazz and can find the music and beauty in noise.” —Matthew Shipp

”extemely tuneful and organic music with a real group synergy, plus a wonderful negotiation between accessibility and a true spirit of adventure. highly recommended!”

- d.d. jackson

“after hearing armen nalbandian’s new cd, I can say that armen has found a personal voice in expressing a music that is so clearly a part of his soul. he brings to his improvisations and organization to his arrangements. he has a touch and playfulness reminiscent of thelonious monk , and a feeling of swing that is natural and easy.”

-ted nash

”from swinging piano melodies to moody atmospheric prepared rhodes, armen brings a myriad of sounds for the listeners delight”
