On Jeff's recent release In Transit-

“......the magic comes not from bebop complexity (though the musicians are clearly bebop adepts as well) but from the soft melding of musical traditions from two continents, adding up to one of the more subtly remarkable accomplishments in jazz this year.” -Jon Sobel blogcritics.org

“.......it comes all the more natural due to the contagious easiness and comfort, that can only stem from a quartet of great chemistry—which is clearly the case here.”- Friedrich Kunzmann allaboutjazz.com
