“…an often stunning collection of great melodies and intelligent improvisations …” — Richard Kamins, Hartford Courant

“Berkman doesn’t rely on old formulas and he isn’t risk-averse. In his tunes, harmonies flow in unanticipated directions, silences open suddenly like trap doors, and quirky rhythmic displacements keep both listeners and bandmembers on their toes (His) music is also full of romance, mystery and good spirits …” — Ed Hazel, JazzIz magazine
