On Alone with Duke:

“I always look forward to playing with David Morgenroth when he is on the venue with me because he’s such an expert musician.  His latest CD is one of the most listenable and interesting CDs I’ve come across in the last several years.  David’s technique and sense of rhythm are impeccable.  It’s a real joy to hear!” 

-- Buddy DeFranco, 2006 NEA Jazz Master, November, 2009

“David Morgenroth shows his imaginative arranging sense and some first-rate piano playing on this loving tribute to The Duke.”

-- Fred Hersch, August, 2009

“Morgenroth successfully draws out the sonorous beauty of Ellington’s music in style.“

-- Review by Robert Spencer, Cadence, May 1999


On Turn Me Loose:

“The arrangements by David Morgenroth, the pianist and musical director for this album,
are…superb.  At the hands of Atwood and Morgenroth, even familiar standards are
transformed into something entirely different, fresh and exciting.”

-- Review by Yozo Iwanami of Swing Journal, November, 2009
