David Franklin, Jazz Times- “The altoist cites Jackie McLean as a mentor, and McLean's influence is immediately apparent in Tolentino's tightly focused, pleasantly piercing tone, much like those of McLean and Kenny Garrett.”

Another positive sign is the patience and attention to detail he puts into sculpting improvisations.”
