”Although he may not be a familiar name to most, Willerm Delisfort makes jazz that must be heard. All three of his selections are excellent. “Modalic Blues” is a live recording, which is driven by particularly noteworthy bass, while harmonized saxophones nudge the gentler “The Island of Ziesha” along. Delisfort doesn't take centerstage until “Tuskegee Experiment”, however, which is where his piano playing truly shines. This one features wonderful saxophone and trumpet interplay, as well as standout bass once again. These samples are of traditional jazz, but they're played with such lively emotion, even fans of the more familiar pop-jazz might dig it, too.” -Dan MacIntosh

”I saw him play at my school this past winter and he absolutely blew me away. I've downloaded his music from Myspace and I've listened the living hell out of it (especially Son of Afrika and Modalic Blues)
