Jerome Sabbagh / Greg Tuohey Quartet

“Mr. Sabbagh played with untroubled self-assurance, and his songs had a sleek and sturdy appeal. Just as crucially, his colleagues strove for the unexpected, individually and as an ensemble. [...] Mr. Sabbagh avoided direct allusions to the saxophone totems. What he is working toward, simply and effectively, is a sincerely personal vocabulary.”

- Nate Chinen, New York Times


"The willfully lyrical tenor saxophonist Jerome Sabbagh is the rarest of rare birds: a young tenor saxophonist with a distinctive concept, dependent not so much on his elders for inspiration as his own imagination."

- Chris Kelsey, JazzTimes


“Memorable tunes with assured performances […] "Pogo" sounds contemporary and vital, and the band delivers one of the year’s strongest ensemble performance.” 

- Peter Margasak, Down Beat


"A refreshing, cliché-free young tenor and soprano saxophonist. In this, his second album as a leader and one including only his compositions, he creates moods as well as lines and spaces."

- Owen Cordle, JazzTimes
