The Grant Stewart Quintet

“Huge sound , creativity and beautiful melodic sense combine to easily place him among the finest saxophonists on the scene today”
— The Villager

“Swinging is his thing, and he does it with aplomb… Stewart is so comfortable at high speed that each line is ripe with nuggets of fluid, rhythmically spot-on melody”
— Zan Stewart, Newark Star-Ledger

“The dry furriness of Stewart’s tone, rubbery phrasing and witty use of melodic and rhythmic rhyme are all drenched specially in Rollins’ late ‘50s aesthetic. ”
— Mark Stryker, Detroit Free Press

“One of my favorite tenor players in the world!”
— Jimmy Cobb

Stewart has an athletic able-bodied style on tenor that can best be described as muscular… what makes him stand out in the large crowd is his ability to sprint across the keys without sacrificing an ounce of beef… impressing with his rare combination of speed and power…”
— Elliott Simon , All About Jazz
