David Franklin, Jazz Times- “The altoist cites Jackie McLean as a mentor, and McLean's influence is immediately apparent in Tolentino's tightly focused, pleasantly piercing tone, much like those of McLean and Kenny Garrett.”

David Orthmand, All About Jazz- “Tolentino's maturity and willingness to make the record more than just a showcase for his own talent is apparent as he shares the writing, arranging, and solo space with an able crew of band mates. Another positive sign is the patience and attention to detail he puts into sculpting improvisations.”
