“...a dazzling new singer... Words fail to adequately describe the thrill of hearing someone with this much talent and class. Kurt Reichenbach, the West Coast golden boy with chops like Mel Torme and Dick Haymes.”
--Rex Reed, The New York Observer

“... a jazz singer out of the Mel Torme-Billy Stritch school of polished pop-jazz crooning...”
--Stephen Holden, The New York Times

“... a natural swinger who understands lyrics, is blessed with a smooth baritone voice, and has the musical sensitivity to find approaches to each song that make his versions of even the most frequently performed standards sound fresh...”
--Joe Lang, Jersey Jazz

“…one of the most dynamic vocal debuts of the past decade. Kurt’s got the chops…. Spread the word.”
--Christopher Loudon, Jazz columnist

“... He loves the classic tunes and adds a reverence to all he sings... Kurt Reichenbach is not a big belter... His voice and style are far more personal... He is an ‘emotional’ singer who has a lot to offer his audience...”
--Myrna Daniels, L.A. Jazz Scene

“…his lively presentation reminds us of Bobby Darin… a real discovery!”
--Keizo Takada, Record Collectors’ Magazine (Japan)
