”American Rock Beauty” has earfeel as a fine Burgundy has mouthfeel. -Carlo Wolff, JAZZTIMES, May 2010.

Never overplaying, Waldorff seems to tease the maximum amount of emotion from every note he plays.- Dr. Matt Warnock, MODERN GUITARIST

“The dialog between Waldorff and McCaslin is the main attraction on this recording (Afterburn), with many rich moments featuring the two in near perfect alliance.” -Mitch Myers, DOWNBEAT

Torben Waldorff may have composed one of the best albums I’ve heard so far in 2010. -Paul Pelon IV, AUDIOPHILE AUDITION
