“Among the smartest large ensembles on the scene today . . . . With Quake Mike Holober establishes a new benchmark for modern large ensemble jazz.”
Jan P. Dennis, “Mike Holober & The Gotham Jazz Orchestra,” Audiophile Audition, February 12, 2009

“With his fourth release as a leader, composer/pianist Mike Holober reaffirms his spiraling presence within modern jazz circles, to augment his role as a first-call session instrumentalist . . . . Holober's arrangements signify a comprehensive study in contrasts and sound-sculpting . . . . a fruitful balance consisting of heady compositional attributes, and a highly entertaining string of movements that beckons repeated listens.”
Glenn Astarita, “Quake by Mike Holober & The Gotham Jazz Orchestra,” Jazz Review, June 5, 2008

"Duke Ellington's legacy is alive and well with pianist Mike Holober and The Gotham Jazz Orchestra . . . . gorgeous voicings and a perfect amount of flavoring from the soloists . . . refreshing and elegant.”
Elliott Simon, “Mike Holober & The Gotham Jazz Orchestra: Quake (2009),” All About Jazz, March 15, 2009
