”Joan Stiles possesses the chops, craft, imagination, wit and sophistication to be mentioned with the most distinguished descendants of Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk and Mary Lou Williams.” — Ted Panken, Downbeat

“With Stiles and Monk, wit and beauty are not mutually exclusive.” — Thomas Conrad, JazzTimes

“Joan Stiles writes and plays brilliantly with great respect for melody and clarity...She is an authentic original.” — Dave Frishberg

“Swings with wit and verve, brimming with the joyous flair of a Wynton Kelly or Erroll Garner...hauntingly beautiful arrangements.” — Bill Milkowski

“Stiles salutes Mary Lou Williams with her inventive original composition, “Hurly-Burly,” a challenging bop vehicle that is worthy of comparison to late Williams' work.” — Ken Dryden, Billboard, All Music Guide

“Adventure, daring, exuberance and wit...I can't think of a new recording in years [Hurly-Burly] that has given me more enjoyment.” — Doug Ramsey
