    Todd is a legend is his own time. I continue to be knocked out by his extraordinary ability to create a sustainable thriving jazz environment night after night, CD after CD that inspires and supports our community in meaningful as well as material ways. Young producers take notes!!!

    Wynton Marsalis intorduce me to Todd Barken and I must say its has been a honor! His professionalism conducting a venue with great entertainment nightly is grand. Also, the fact that he has high respect for accomplished ladies of color who scat like myself to grace his stage at a jazz moment like any other musician standing in a horn line! He shows know no prejudice and this is an important factor in this juander of music;Jazz! Thanks for this great interview I must say I don't know Mr. Barken
    as well as I know Skain but I would love for him to produce my next Monk project he knows how to make jazz unforgettable in a wonderful way.

    I had the honor to meet Mr. Barkan last year after he booked my 14 year old son to play with his trio.He is courteous, respectful and a true professional. He truly believes that Jazz is very important for the youth and his support of my son is a true indication of this. Glad that my son has had this opportunity and I'm sure as he grows in this business he can look at Mr. Barkan as a positive influence and role model in his life
