“With a depth of feeling that belies his disciplined classical technique, Wyrsch demonstrates why it’s past time for this expressive but long- overlooked instrument to return to the fore.” —

“Linus sounds great and I really like the direction he is going into.” — Andy McGhee (Saxophonist with Lionel Hampton, Woody Herman)

“Linus is moving toward a formidable career.” — Javon Jackson (Tenor Saxophonist with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, Les McCann, Freddie Hubbard)

“During the period at Berklee College of Music as a student, I considered him to be a talented clarinetist and determined to achieve his mark as being the greatest, and I see without a doubt, he has arrived.” — Frank Tiberi (hand-picked leader of the Woody Herman Orchestra)
