"DellaRatta...well crafted with strong traces of influence from McCoy Tyner and Bill Evans."
"DellaRatta brought new life to an old sweet song."
"Rick DellaRatta is one of the finest Jazz pianists alive."
"One of the worlds finest pianists."
"His voice is his secret weapon. It's pure velvet."
"DellaRatta has the talent, tunes and superb sidemen to deserve at least a Diana Krall -sized career. He sings and plays better, and fronts a tremendous band."
