Speaking of the Dan Karlsberg Group:

“this is a group functioning on the highest level of communication and commitment...they tackle freedom and restraint with equal vigor, convincing on whatever musical front they choose.”

--Marc Medwin, Cadence Magazine 2008.

“Besides showcasing his hypnotic style of playing - which leans like Monk, and swings like Bill Evans, often exploding with jaw-drop energy - the album showed that the pianist's abilities as a bandleader, arranger and composer were on par with his fingerwork.”

--Mike Breen, CityBeat Magazine 2008.
