Dave Goldberg and Duane Allen play solid, bop influenced jazz the way it's supposed to be done. Allen's guitar shimmers with original chords and tasty single-note solos, somewhat in the style of jazz giant Jim Hall.' - Matt Schudel (Ft. Lauderdale Sun Sentinel) 'Goldberg, displays a strong and assured tone and a maturity of style, rooted in swinging mainstream modern jazz." - Sid Gribetz (Jazz Times Magazine) "They sound wonderful, I'm quite impressed. They're growing faster than I can even imagine." - Ira Sullivan 'Allen's guitar solo on 'Body and Soul' for example, is abstract wonder, spare with just the right hint of lyricism executed with that glossy contemporary guitar tone. And Goldberg, throughout the session, seems intent on stepping away from the ready-at-hand. His lines often start where you expect, but end up somewhere else. He and Goldberg work regularly together and it shows.' -David Dupont (Cadence Magazine) 'The Dave Goldberg Quartet is a very exciting young group not merely cranking out the same old lame old.' - Bob Weinberg (City Link Magazine) 'Goldberg's tenor sound is full and rich; yet, he remains light throughout. With Allen's sparkling guitar timbre they lend dramatic excitement coupled with a floating sensation that connects the dots.' - Jim Santella (LA Jazz Scene) 'Their contrasting approaches make for some compelling listening, bringing to mind the work of Joe Henderson and John Scofield or Dave Liebman and Pat Metheny. - City Link Best of Awards 2001.
