Jason Klobnak / Press

“Whether the tempo is quick or slow, Klobnak favors a thoughtful groove and meticulous harmony in his writing. There is some nice variety on the CD...”

“Klobnak's concepts are presented in a clear and logical format. Breaking the Monotony is an excellent collection of exercises for intermediate to advanced improvisers who wish to add more rhythmic range and diversity to their solos.”

“Trumpeter Jason Klobnak has a knack for creating inviting and exciting music.”

“Most striking to this listener is the wisdom and tenderness of Klobnak's ballads "Where Would I Go?" and the title composition: I've not yet seen a mountain move, but I myself am by the music of these five players. It's a great time to be a Jazz fan in Denver. Listen to 'Mountain, Move' and hear for yourself.”

“Klobnak's ear is very acute in guiding his aural vision of jazz. Mountain, Move is an exceptional recording that bristles with creativity and inventiveness, all within the confines of consonant jazz.”

“Klobnak is a stand out trumpeter as well as composer, and his quintet is full to the brim with equally exceptional talent.”

““…its conciseness is a large part of its appeal: Klobnak has an approach, he tells you what it is, and he provides a limited number of practice materials in all keys to help convey his idea. In this reviewer’s experience, students of jazz are sometimes comforted by the thought that they are being taught something concrete that works and sounds cool. This book has the potential to act for students in that way.””
