“Jazz musicians cut their teeth on standards, and often keep playing them throughout long careers. Thus, focusing on standards allows the members of NYSQ to feel like they are communicating almost telepathically.” – The Rivertowns Enterprise

“The Live In Tokyo album captures the energy and mastery displayed at the concert and shows how standards can serve as a foundation for exploration, not just as museum pieces.” – Louisville Music News
