“Count the young, open-spirited band Walking Distance as an impressive contender in a new crop of ensembles representing the contemporary acoustic jazz aesthetic. … Neighborhood announces the arrival of a creative firebrand of a band worth hearing and following.”
★★★★ – DownBeat Magazine
“If any group can turn the concept of ebb and flow into a fully realized art form, it’s Walking Distance.”
★★★★ – All About Jazz
“Although Walking Distance can evoke classic past artists… this is not a even close to a retro act, instead, Walking Distance has that modern nervous ‘punky’ energy and quick-change sensibility that informs much of today’s downtown NY scene. Still, if you appreciate the manic energy of early be-bop, Walking Distance is one of the few modern bands I’ve heard that can play with that kind of emotional dedication and fire.”
★★★★½ – Jazz Music Archives
