 "The New Yorker plays an original, sympathetic and encouraging development of jazz. Because the pieces of his last CD "Revolution" include guests like Andy Summers (The Police) and Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers), they come across as very well-made pop songs. But in solo concert he builds them into powerful jazz numbers - they can swirl and shimmer. The unifying effect is the charismatic, gently roughened voice of the singer. In the piano part, however, he revealed a flourishing, musical passion - and at the same time a discipline that tames the improvisation in service of the song. It was an exciting musical experience."
