"Art Tatum on the right hand; Johann Sebastian Bach on the left; Donal Fox in the middle."
-- Terrance McKnight, WQXR, New York
"Donal Fox is simply without peer."
-- Howard Mandel, Down Beat
“Warren Wolf: one of the most influential young vibraphonists playing anywhere.”
-- San Diego County News
"Composer/pianist, Donal Fox, has an extraordinary musical reach-Latin vamps, New Orleans second line marches, free-jazz explosions, Monk taken to the out-there edges of Schoenberg and Webern, a lyric take on Bach or Chopin. He's got the all-over power of McCoy Tyner and the superb keyboard marksmanship of Ellington and Horowitz" -- Jon Garelick
“The young vibraphonist Warren Wolf, from Baltimore, plays music that doesn't argue with the most popular and usable parts of jazz’s past. It doesn't hesitate or erase its own tracks. It uses swing, blues, virtuosity, cuteness, directness and seldom wanders from a sense of tune.” –Ben Ratliff, New York Times
“Fox’s ’Firefly’ was driving and forceful from the beginning, with Fox demonstrating how fast and flexible his piano playing is. It switched to some 4/4 swing before Wolf--a fast and fleet improviser with single mallets- -played a bluesy solo that built in intensity. The music showed the dexterity and virtuosity of the musicians, as well as Fox's ability to meld musical themes into a powerful overall statement that holds interest throughout.” -- All About Jazz
