”A word about Mr Fuller: In his amazing gossamer piano solos, he sprinkles stardust on whatever song he plays; you hold your breath in wonder.” — New York Times, 2010

”Larry Fuller merits special attention. If you closed your eyes and concentrated on piano solos that flowed as lightly and sweetly as a mountain brook, you could swear he was channeling the musical spirit of one of Billie Holiday's greatest accompanists, Teddy Wilson.” — New York Times, 2009

”Mr Fuller generates his own incandescence with riveting solos that summarize the history of jazz piano.” — Post-Gazette, January 2013
