JKO Quotes     [  > more quotes  ]


"Jim Knapp's music is full of intensity, emotion, and creative textures with many varied influences. His music should be more known. It's among the best of orchestral jazz being written these days. Refreshing..." –Maria Schneider, jazz composer


"Knapp's lyrical, sophisticated, Gil Evans-like arrangements roil like clouds on a blustery day, with multiple themes surfacing and submerging in the complex harmonies. He also uses the best musicians in town." –The Seattle Times


"This is a superb band! These guys combined with Jim Knapp’s world class arranging skills make for gorgeous sounds – soul food for the ears!" –Dick Mueller, Jazz Journal


"An outstanding jazz album... a cerebral fireworks show, equal parts flame, spark and color, riveting to the last note." –D.J. Johnson, Amazon.com
