“Gorgeous melody-based improvisation. It’s an excellent example of how an artist can both imprint his stamp on a tune while letting the composer’s original intent shine through.”
– NYC Jazz Record

“The future of playing standards is certainly safe in Haidu’s hands.”
Simon Adams, Jazz Journal UK

“Brilliantly talented pianist-composer Noah Haidu continues his fascination with iconic jazz pianist Keith Jarrett with this disc….He’s an astounding musician himself and grasps the nuances of Jarrett’s love of improvisation.”
–The Toledo Blade (Tom Henry)

“An elegant, economical, and sure-footed exposition into this vision of the standards songbook…quietly ravishing.”
— Pierre Giroux, All About Jazz

“This is straight ahead hard bop and post bop at its best….you don’t need to know that to immediately fall in love with this date.”
— A Green Man Review (U.K. Cornwall)

“Haidu’s trademarks of soulful fluidity and natural melodic intuition are framed by Williams’ nimble bass lines and crisp touch…. Their first ballad is “All the Way,” taken at a tantalizingly slow tempo… these are players of the highest caliber leaning hard on emotion rather than simply technical prowess.”
— Makin’ a Scene (Jim Hynes)

“Performed with a sense of originality and clarity”
— Columbia Daily Tribune (Jon W. Poses)

“This is straight ahead hard bop and post bop at its best….you don’t need to know that to immediately fall in love with this date. “
— A Green Man Review

“Delicately-hued, supremely-heartfelt new recording.…”

“Haidu is both technically and artistically in a special class – an uncommonly skilled and stable and steady capacity that has something to offer in its own name and in its own right….strongly carried through by Haidu’s stylish handling of the piano.” (Ivan Rod)

“The listening is beautiful, sensible and essential…great musicians, who do nothing but interpret, with knowledge and passion, their tradition.”

“Poignant ballads… interpreted with extreme sensitivity and delicacy”
— MusicaJazz (Ivo Franchi, Italy)
