Rudy’s album entered the SoundScan Current Jazz Chart yesterday and we couldn’t be more excited for him, and the people who are listening. In case you missed it, below is a list of some of the things that are being said about the record. If you don’t already own it, don’t waste any more time. And look for the record to climb even higher in the coming weeks!

“a first-tier talent”
Nate Chinen, The New York Times

 

“an ambitious and infectious debut”
Frank Alkyer, DownBeat Magazine

 

“No single mood, idea or direction dominates on 303, and that’s what’s so refreshing. So many albums tend to be created with tunnel vision, but 303 is more of a panoramic construct.”
Dan Bilawsky, AllAboutJazz.com

 

“‘Mimi Sunrise,’ … is the drummer-as-bandleader statement that shows Royston’s more nuanced touches, revealing his technique as not really a trick of showmanship or virtuosity, but one of limitless possibilities of texture.”
Nate Patrin, Burning Ambulance.com

 

“surprisingly soulful”. . . “303 is a solid debut”
Richard Kamins, Step Tempest

 

“Rudy Royston steps out swinging with an auspicious debut.”
Brent Black, CriticalJazz.com

 

“a terrifically energetic bandleading debut”
Nate Chinen, The New York Times
