"Gardner and Asherie have both built impressive reputations atop their skills at interpreting days-gone-by gems—Great American Songbook fare, should-be-standards, complete obscurities known only to the jazz cognoscenti—and their renown proved completely warranted." -- Dan Bilawsky, AllAboutJazz (October, 2016)
"With elegance, simplicity and a disarming charm, Hilary Gardner started the first set with an up tempo version of “I Wish I Knew” while Ehud Asherie offered inspired accompaniment and soloing at the piano. I was already in awe at what would be a delightful evening of music." -- Claude Collerette (2016)
