"Pianist Richard Sussman is among the most ambitious composers on the jazz scene today. His latest project, the epic Evolution Suite, exemplifies this creative outlook with dignity and self-assurance."
- Brian Zimmerman, Downbeat Four Stars! ✮✮✮✮

"A cohesive work displaying his mastery of composition and improvisation. Filled with diverse rhythms and themes, a palpable excitement, fascinating electronics, and very beautiful moments the effect of all of this is thrilling."
- Laurel Gross, NYC Jazz Record

"It was an amazing and very impressive work!
BRAVO & CONGRATULATIONS! "
- Rufus Reid

"Beautiful piece, Richard. Congratulations!"
- Kenny Werner

"I checked out your "The Evolution Suite". WOW!! Great! What an ambitious project. Bravo!!"
- Ed Neumeister

"a flair for well-wrought melody and firmly structured solos... with an interest in dark, deep, and even mysterious themes." - Neal Tesser, Downbeat

"Sussman's excellent composing and playing is the driving force at the center of Continuum. Whether weaving a tender meditation like "The Wayfarer" or building a solo whose intricacy seems to reflect his kinetic energy, Sussman mines countless riches from the keyboard."
Terrell Holmes, New York City Jazz Record
