“When Cyrus Chestnut plays, it’s often difficult to tell which genre he’s in, which is a good thing. Blending contemporary jazz, traditional jazz and gospel, plus the occasional seasonings of Latin and samba, he gives himself plenty of freedom to explore different emotions, while keeping the music in recognizable form” (All About Jazz). “Whether it’s a smoldering ballad, rollicking blues or burning gospel, Cyrus Chestnut knows how to induce a smile” (JazzTimes). “What makes his music fly is a complete security in his style, and that sense of untroubled self-assurance” (The New York Times).
