Midwestrecord.com “Locking in a tight groove that swings and opens your ears, it's a little retro while being very modern. Hot stuff that'll get you moving”

Rotcod Zzaj AKA Dick Metcalf zzaj.freehostia,com ”Though this is our first listen to Bill's work, we feel like we've known him for years...I suppose that may (par tially) be because he has Dave Stryker doing guitar on this outing...but mostly, it's because Bill's saxophone style is timeless...he just KICKS as a leader. If you'r looking for music full of life and high energy, this is your 2009 “first pick”. I give it a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED & tell you that we expect to be hearing a lot more from this very talented player.”

Ejazznews.com Project Omaha,which also refers to the band, presents an audacious post bop repertior featuring assertive performances from the leader and the entire crew. For being a live recording, the audio is first-rate...Bill Wimmer definitely has a winner on his hands, a creative endeavor with soul, swing and swagger, Project Omaha may be one of the better albums of the year. Not bad for a bunch of guys who had not played together before.”
