"...The trio's third CD together, augmented by percussionist Satoshi Takeishi, a superb colorist, highlights the band's uncanny empathy on artful covers of Bob Dylan's 'Blowin' in the Wind', the soulful Bonnie Raitt tune 'I Can't Make You Love Me' and the poignant standard 'For All We Know.' Those interpretations coexist with appealing Pintchik originals..."

Coda Magazine (review of Quartets by Joseph Blake)
"[Quartets has] the impeccably consistent wrap of surround sound for music done right.

JazzTimes (review of Quartets by Tom Conrad)
