”Subtlety and restraint, combined with power and purpose.” -Cadence Magazine, September 2000

“[One] whose name and music you'll hear a lot of in the future.” - Richard Kamins, Hartford Courant

On “The Words Project” (New Amsterdam), his impressive new debut, the multireedist Sam Sadigursky sets contemporary poetry to plausible musical settings . - Nate Chinen, NY Times, 9/14/07

“that rare anomaly: a jazz-and-poetry record that sounds utterly natural and convincing” - Steve Smith, www.nightafternight.blog.com

“A wonderful surprise for a poetry translator to have one’s lines set to music. An ominous, solemn score with a piercing voice rising from disquiet. Makes you feel quite ill at ease, as good poetry should.” - Willem Groenewegan (poet, translator of Mark Boog’s “Water, Aspirin, You”)

“The core band is inventive, yet watertight, while Sadigursky thrills with his solo turn.” - Brad Walseth, jazzchicago.net

“Evocative poetry and lean melody lines” - Suzanne Lorge, All About Jazz, August 2007

“Entrancing... hypnotic.... The Words Project” is a musical world full of riches and you should partake in this feast.” - Richard Kamins, www.courant.com

“Vibrant and thought-provoking... Sadigursky has truly created one of the more fascinating records of recent years. His ambition is rewarded by a set of performances that is a brilliant effort from start to finish.” - Jay Collins, Cadence Magazine

“Profound... sublime...” - Jazzman Magazine (France)
