“Listening to Gordon Goodwin’s Band, I was immediately taken by his contemporary musical viewpoint, his use of dynamics and his bevy of superb soloists.” —Quincy Jones

“Whenever I hear his music, I get the sudden urge to retire!” —Sammy Nestico

The Little Phat Band, Gordon Goodwin proves that whether heavyweight or middleweight, he is able to pack a knockout punch.” —George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly

Goodwin’s ability to combine jazz excellence with any musical style makes his writing appealing to fans across the spectrum. That’s why both beboppers and headbangers dig Gordon Goodwin’s Phat Bands... big and small. —L.A. Times

“Trying to describe the towering talents of Gordon Goodwin is one of my most frustrating secret pleasures. He is a gifted and creative pianist, an explosive and ‘haul-ass,’ ‘kick-butt,’ sax player, an arranger of absolutely no limit of musical styles and composer of some of the best (and cleverly titled) compositions ever.” —Johnny Mandel
