”Eli Sundelson is an outstanding young jazz organist. With his fine technique and fertile imagination I feel he has the promise of great success in the field of music and in particular, jazz.”--Kenny Burrell ”pyrotechnics...Jimmy Smith would be very pleased!”--Eddie Becton- Producer/Host The Jazz Journey KXLU 88.9 FM-Los Angeles

“Eli's direction in jazz organ is deliberate and well conceived. His ideas unfold in a soulful pattern of comfort and ease.”--Pete Fallico, Doodlin' Productions KSUP 88.9FM , Santa Cruz, www.doodlinlounge.com

“Sundelson hints a little at Larry Goldings but...has his own voice...The improvisations are logical, the interplay between the musicians gives the set a strong unity and purpose, and the group has its own sound within the organ trio tradition.”--Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene

“Sundelson [is] cranking out a racing bass line on his organ. Throughout the album it becomes apparent that Sundelson’s unique instrument of choice, the Hammond B-3 organ, a relic from the ’50s and ’60s, is the group’s secret weapon.”--Jake Ayres, The Daily Bruin
