“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
“Purity of tone, expressive chordal capabilities, fleet runs, nuanced articulation and a unique exoticism allow the vibes to lead or fit in whether the material be-bop or ballads. On this self-titled release, young vibist Warren Wolf showcases all these qualities and more,“
— Elliott Simon, New York City Jazz Record
