“Few musicians in the history of jazz have wielded as wide and diverse a palette as Oliver Lake… This is classic Big Band performance with a decidedly modern sound.” Russ Musto - All About Jazz

“Lake’s a big thinker with a taste for large ensembles that can show off his meaty compositions and his sure sense of coloring.” The New Yorker

“Saturday’s show features the 17-piece Oliver Lake Big Band…This majestic, thunderous ensemble works infrequently, but raises a ruckus anytime it does.” Brad Farberman - Time Out New York
