Review:
"Klock's taste in collaborators is as fine as his taste in repertoire: perfect. ...Highly recommended to anyone who likes well-crafted, jazz-inspired contemporary music." (Fanfare)

"Klock plays with superb command, tonal beauty, effortless technique, and artistic sincerity. He easily transcends all the register challenges, indulging in an array of wonderful colors with each pianist and selling every composition as a natural and idiomatic showcase." (American Record Guide)
