John Corbert DOWNBEAT ”[Bleckmann's] a gifted singer (and twister) of songs, his voice flexible and rich, his phrasing sensitive and clear…, which makes his precise articulation such a treat.”

Phil DiPietro, AllAboutJazz ”Bleckmann possesses technique so colossal, yet so meticulous, he can seem otherworldly, an android-like embodiment of sci-fi vocalisms, a bodily vessel for that voice.

Francis Davis - The Village Voice Theo Bleckmann and Fumio Yasuda, Las Vegas Rhapsody--The Night They Invented Champagne (Winter & Winter). The most transcendent vocal album in many a moon (for my money, anyway) reminds me of Björk's Selmasongs...
