For a man leading a quartet bearing one of the most distinguished names in jazz, Ravi Coltrane can be a self-effacing presence. John Coltrane’s saxophonist son puts a clear distance between his own work and his late father’s by often playing spry and subtly crafted lines in a murmur rather than unleashing cloudbursts of sound, and mixing originals with those of his personal heroes and the contributions of exceptional sidemen. - John Fordham "The Guardian"

Brazilian music brings out the poet in the guitarist and vocalist Pizzarelli. Lighting on classic bossa nova, with assistance from the singer Jobim (the grandson of the Brazilian great Antonio Carlos Jobim), Pizzarelli basks in a tropical comfort zone that is as inspiring to him as the work of Sondheim or Ellington. In honor of Frank Sinatra’s centennial, Pizzarelli is also likely to invoke the late-sixties collaborations between Ol’ Blue Eyes and Jobim. ~ The New Yorker
