Anton Schwartz / Press

"…accessible and groovy, yet deep and consistently surprising"

“Tenor saxophonist Anton Schwartz is a guiding light of both the Bay Area and national jazz scenes.”

“Schwartz he has a classic clear-throated tenor sound and kicks like a mule. His zeal to communicate is fervent yet sophisticated.”

“Warm, generous tone, impeccably developed solos and infectious performance energy”

Jerry Karp - San Francisco Chronicle

“You play the tenor sax like it's meant to be played!”

Illinois Jacquet

"Schwartz has created a CD worthy of the best of 1960s Blue Note… there are several songs on this set that deserve to become future standards."

Scott Yanow - L.A. Jazz Scene

“You'd expect a brainiac like Schwartz to make brainy jazz, and indeed he does. What surprises are the upbeat vibe, stong melodies, and unflagging sense of swing that he brings to this music.”

Ed Kopp - JAZZIZ

“Good saxophone players can make their instrument talk to you. Anton goes a step farther... his music communicates with your soul.”

Ray Redmond - Jazz USA
