Eisenman's contribution to this classic school is a comfortably controlled level of invention, not so facile as to seem merely practiced, or so giddy as to turn everything into a romp.” Mark Miller CD review of The Chant Mark Eisenman Unity/Page Rating ***1/2 Dec.18, 1997

”The T.O. pianist needs documenting as leader, though he's a sideman on many recordings.” CD Review-may 2, 1998 Geoff Chapman
