”One of the great new talents in New York” (Time Out New York)

“This recording (the Hollow World) extends Tsahar's responsibility for some of the most exciting improvised music currently being created” (Signal to Noise)

”The Aylerian tenor can speak in tongues as articulately as anyone can these days- it's a thrill when abstraction is truly compelling “ (Village Voice)

”Few young jazz players generate the kind of buzz among New York cognoscenti that tenor saxophonist Assif Tsahar, have over the past couple of years. ...through shifts in register and tonal quality, Tsahar has a knack for creating the illusion that he is playing more than one instrument- This is some of the least dense and frenetic free jazz to come out of New York, and some of the most emotionally affecting. “ (Jazziz)

”(Assif Tsahar) ... spring forth with a potent, fully formed style that marks him as an important new voice on his instrument. It's is always a revelation to find avant-gaurdists worth hearing even in their quiet moments. “ (Music hound Jazz - the essential music guide)

”...Saxophonist Assif Tsahar is one of the most dynamic young players in jazz...this is a galvanizing listen from start to finish”
