“Guitarist Tom Csatari writes some of the most distinctive and thoughtfully compelling music of any composer in New York right now. With epic film soundtrack sweep, the improvisational flair of jazz and grey-sky postrock atmosphere, his work for both large and small groups transcends genre. It’s just good.” – Lucid Culture


“There is a contradictory feeling in Mr. Csatari’s playing — organized dissonance, loose concision, meticulous roughness — which makes it special.” – The New York Times


“…a real breath of fresh air…swirls of country blues, progressive rock, modern jazz, and electronic drones combine to form something undeniably tasty.” – All About Jazz


“sharp chamber-jazz originals which split the difference between proggy and folky.” – Time Out New York


“vivid pop compositions” … “pastoral exploratory works flicker with bright life” – Secret Decoder Magazine


“…infamous strums that move from the reverberating wooden hollows of the instrument’s walls and basins to the air canals that course toward all pertinent and relevant sensory receptors.” – Impose Magazine


“Music with a rare kind of charm.” – Bird Is The Worm
