"It’s not quite anything I can classify, and it is perhaps the most oddly enjoyable record I’ve heard in long time."
Chris Robinson, Earshot Magazine
"Rick Waldron’s The Heart of the Matter is sure to please almost everyone in the fractured contemporary jazz world. Making creative and well-played music has always been the heart of the matter with jazz, and with this fine new disc, Waldron expertly hits that sincere heart mark."
“Waldron played voraciously, passionately....original compositions....often moving and striking..”
"...This is a wonderful third album with a very skilled composer at the center...I’d go see these guys in aheartbeat and we are lucky to have Rick Waldron in the Northwest."
