”Stein is exhilarating, a young master of his fiendishly difficult horn. Stein is a player to look out for.”

- Chris May, All About Jazz

“Stein stands apart from the standard instrumental lineage. Whereas a player like Eric Dolphy or Michel Portal builds on wide intervallic leaps and verticality, Stein (like Michel Pilz, Rudi Mahall or John Tchicai) operates in a horizontal fashion, favoring a breadth of twists and turns more sideways than anything else, woven into a post-Ornette fabric.”

- Clifford Allen, All About Jazz
