”Truly...his inspired playing invokes the living spirit of Albert Ayler.” - Mark Corroto, AllAboutJazz

“Ohio trio Wizards, which featured the impressive sax work of free jazz veteran Hasan Abdur-Razzaq, whose caustic, spiritual tone recalled the roaring cries of Albert Ayler.” - Kyle Long, NUVO - Indianapolis

“His work combines elements of ecstatic free jazz with periods of more reflective sounds. Travel to Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, and study of African rhythms through hand drumming, have contributed to his sound through a consciousness of global musical culture. Above all, Razzaq is motivated with bringing a level of sincerity and heartfelt expression to his music.” - Steve Panton, Hamtramck / Edwin Gallery, MI
