“Sounds Of Brasil is a unique blend of contemporary arrangements and original melodies in various different styles of jazz with Brazilian grooves.” – Russ Musto-All about Jazz ““44:33” … performs program of bright melodies, tight ensemble collaboration, individualized solos and firm underlying swing. 44:33 – titled for its running time — is an expression of accomplishment and direction from a coterie of players, instigated by a well informed, thoroughly engaged leader.” – Howard Mandel-Downbeat “Matching the brio and inventiveness of modern jazz with strong melodies and brilliant ensemble interplay, Ovrutski creates a major “time to take notice” statement on 44:33.” – Thomas Staudter-Downbeat
