Preminger's Debut CD, Dry Bridge Road:

“More than just a promising starting point, this is a display of integrity; here’s a musician you feel you can trust... Preminger’s album “Dry Bridge Road” is unusually graceful... [he] plays with care and dry precision, dividing his time among all registers, with even tone and projection in each.” - Ben Ratliff, New York Times

“Noah Preminger's impressive premiere, Dry Bridge Road, offers a tantalizing glimpse into the future of an up-and-coming artist.” - Troy Collins, All About Jazz

“Preminger is a more than promising young tenor saxophonist whose cohorts on this recording debut reflect the esteem in which he is held... the unison line of Sax of a Kind with Ben Monder is immaculately played, while Preminger's solos, particularly on Where Seagulls Fly and Blues for Steve Lacey, are assured and well conceived. Tellingly, in the group improvisations that develop, Preminger sounds thoroughly at home.” - Ray Comiskey, Irish Times (Dublin)

“...the music should turn listeners' heads and ears... one is immediately struck by the maturity of the compositions... Preminger may be in his early 20s but the maturity of his musical choices shows he's a good listener and very talented.” - Richard Kamins, Hartford Courant

“Surrounding himself with this hippest of New York cats with chops galore, this smoking debut is a grand statement... This cat is proof the future has bright lights.” - Chris Spector, Midwest Record

“Noah's understanding of the current jazz idiom is without parallel...He possesses the technique, touch and sensitivity of an elder, plus the knowledge and brains to excel as a professional musician.” - Jerry Bergonzi
