  "…at the end of a European tour…their familiarity with their leader’s subtle writing and, consequently, the robust informality with which they addressed it were both mightily impressive…. Baum’s band gelled beautifully in their ensemble roles and struck tasteful sparks off each other when required, Colligan producing some rich, cascading explorations of relatively complex material, and both Baum and Haskins powerful and emotive in their solos. The unusual front-line combination… resulted in some intriguing textures … and Hirshfield and Weidenmueller providing brisk and flawless rhythmic support throughout an absorbingly varied program. This was a classy, musical performance from a top-notch band."– Chris Parker (from The Vortex Jazz Club in London review)

 “…on a cold night in January this reviewer decided to experience the Jamie Baum Septet at Joe’s Pub in the east village. The experience was nothing short of extraordinary. Each tune was gripping, and played to perfection by the ensemble. The best compliment that can be given to such compositional creativity is that all concept of the passage of time was lost… I had been transported…for what seemed like precious few moments, but it was enough to leave me breathless and wanting more.” —  David Miller, All About Jazz
