“Hobbs, Baron, Washington and Lewis are at the absolute top of their game.” Phil Freeman, Jazziz, 2004

“Spring Cycle is a CD filled with well-played music by first rate, dedicated musicians.” Harvey Siders, JazzTimes, June 2005

“Steve Hobbs does not sound derivative of his predecessors (Milt Jackson, Bobby Hutcherson, or Gary Burton); he has carved out his own identity on vibes and marimba.” Scott Yanow, Jazziz, July 1996
