“Now we’re talking. Hard bop jazz fans need look no further than this new record, Very Good Year, by the Jon Burr Quintet, coming out on Oct. 10, 2015. Led by a monster bass player, the Quintet is comprised of fearless movers and shakers, New York musicians to the core: Pianist Mike Eckroth, drummer Jerome Jennings, tenor Steven Frieder, and trumpeter Tim Ouimette." -Review on

… Together with his Quintet, Burr’s latest invention gives a much-needed punch to the dying art form of hard bop, a style many jazz musicians fear to tread. Burr eats hard bop for lunch, purposely selecting popular covers, standard bearers, and cooking up a hard bop lover’s dream in the selection of 12 songs meant to put on blast full volume.” - By Carol Banks Weber AXS Contributor Aug 10, 2015

“Jon Burr is a fabulous leader, composer and, especially with this recording, arranger. As a fan one should have a field day listening for all the clever musical signposts and touchstones he includes in each track. This is an enthusiastic project and forward thinking artists like Burr and company are certainly leading the charge.” - By Eric Harabadian, Jazz Inside Magazine, August 2015 issue
