"Russell is one of the great men of postwar modernism, a direct link to the time when everything--architecture, film, music, society-was being reinvented. His writing is so multifaceted and many layered that you want to hear it again. Every band should play a Russell composition, or at least aspire to his adventurous spirit. Four stars. "
John Walter, The Guardian, London, June 16, 2003.

"The revelation of the Umbria Festival was Russell. Both Russell's ensemble and his music, which he has continued to refine and update over a career spanning six decades proved timeless."

"George is an unsung hero in the history of jazz and 20th century classical music, and has been a tremendous influence."
Denny Zeitlin, Downbeat, September 2004.

 

"...proving what a treasure he is, a rare composer who can inject a grove into challenging charts, and keep the music about the moment."
