"The modern jazz piano trio is alive and well...a decalogue of [Routenberg's] compositions...rich in lyricism...calm waters with some nice ripples."
—George W. Harris (Jazz Weekly)
"A work of unified expression from a charismatic trio...with substantial moments of gratification."
—Filipe Freitas (Jazz Trail)
"The trio often seems to think as one, sounding quite tight but also spontaneous..."
—L.A. Jazz Scene/Scott Yanow, Jazz Journalist and Historian
"All original material, nicely done." B+
—Tom Hull (former jazz critic for the Village Voice)
