”Michael has three qualities I find essential in a musician: a beautiful sound, a big heart, and fearlessness. His playing is always interesting, surprising, and challenging.” - Jean Michel Pilc

“ Michael Feinberg is a very talented young bassist who plays both Acoustic and Electric Basses. He is a bassist to keep an eye on. He has the flexibility, energy, love of the music and intensity necessary to make a difference NOW !!!” - John Pattitucci

“Hes one bad dude!” - Mike Stern

“Of the many sessions that we have done at Sear Sound over the last 44 years, I found Mr. Feinberg's music to be outstanding. His use of poly rhythms and unique chordal progressions attracted my attention and gave the music an unusual vitality. In this age of mediocrity and paucity of musical ideas, I felt that Mr. Feinberg's music had an impetus rarely heard in my studio.” -Walter Sear, Sear Sound Studio

“. . .embracing elements of both pop music and the avant- garde with a strong flare for jazz music. . . of the here and now.” - Chad Radford, Creative Loafing

“Back in the day, jazz was the music the cool kids listened to. Sure, it's still cool. But between PBS documentaries and black-tie nights at upscale music halls, the genre's downtown following has moved on up. Cue Michael Feinberg, the 22-year old Atlanta-raised, New York-based composer and bassist giving classical jazz an indie makeover. Now, as he prepares to road- trip it to Austin for his first-ever showing at the SXSW music festival, we sat down to find out how a musical prodigy turns into an evil genius.” - Spinner
