”Mr. Hendrickson-Smith boasts a relaxed, warm melodic bent and an engaging sound; he's a real swinger, and he's steeped in the blues…..an old soul who's got something to say that people ought to hear.” -Zan Stewart, Jazziz Magazine

”He remains an unquestionable master of the genre; at a mere thirty one years of age, Hendrickson-Smith, who doubles on flute, is the possesor of a world-weary tone that many players his senior would kill for.” -Peter Aaron, All About Jazz

”Hendrickson-Smith's straight-ahead session captures the essence of a century of great music...an album that brings out the best in straight-ahead jazz for the 21st century.” -Cadence Magazine
