"The message is that the entire album is a highlight and not to be missed."
"Boasting ten pieces when at full capacity, trumpeter Derrick Gardner and his Jazz Prophets boast a Jazz Messenger-like power."

"You can never get enough great bop or big band, and Echoes of Ethnicity collides the two for a release that's letter perfect in every possible way."
"Sultry, sensuous, and very reminiscent of the late 1950’s and 60’s, hard-bop ensembles blend with a hint of the new and refreshing mix of unexplored territory interjected by Gardner himself."
"the arrangements are top-notch, the songwriting is tight and the re-imagining of covers creative"
