”He compacts the horn’s history with no presumption and, overall, shows a magnetic sense of levity while demonstrating his own sheer brilliance.” -- Coda Magazine: November/December 1998

”...a total player, with outrageous facility and an inquiring mind...” --John Corbett: Down Beat, September 1998
