”Evan Knight! Positive proof that the beat goes on! What's the beat? It's the heartbeat of real people who want and need to be impacted by what's in our souls -- not what's expected from radio consultants. This is really good music. He's only at the beginning though (exciting huh!) so stay tuned.” - Kirk Whalum

“A very impressive debut recording from a very talented Evan Knight, “Reminiscence,” a pulsating first-rate recording of Smooth Jazz, is definitely bound to get critical acclaim from jazz critics and audiences alike. This album marks the entrance of a new breed of Smooth jazz artist, one with potential to change the scenery a bit.” - Edward Blanco; ejazznews.com
