” Long before his first release, I was never shy about expressing my affection and appreciation for Jeremy Manasia's work. Generally, the average layman isn't cognizant of the fact that, not only are musicians practicioners of the craft, we are also fans. don't really see pianists sharing the stage; this means I have to make an effort to catch a Manasia set so I can truly appreciate his mastery...”

Eric S. Reed

”...we agree that is serious jazz coming from Manasia's trio. Jerry really swings on piano on “You Do Something To Me” and even with more of a swagger on “Witchery”. These are young players coming together having played with more notable talent and now saying something on their own. Jeremy has four originals here as well and we're convinced that what he is saying is worth listening to!”

D. Oscar  Groomes O's Place Jazz Newsletter

“It is impossible for me to take the long, long cab ride from JFK to Manhattan--up the Van Wyck to the LIE, past Corona Park to the Queensborough Bridge--as I do frequently in the course of my work, without the “Witchery” album playing in my head. Jeremy has created a magnificent soundtrack for the City. “

...Manasia lives in a world where Bud Powell plays fuzzed out wah-wah fusion, and I'd like to spend more time in that place.” - JAZZ
