Montreal pianist-composer Josh Rager's music encompasses a lot of sounds from the acoustic jazz oeuvre of the past 40 years. He brings a fresh sound from deep within the tradition.)  Karen Plato – Vancouver Sun

Josh Rager is one of the new breed of Quebec musicians offering up a sweet, smoky, fast-paced brand of fusion and uptempo jazz.”  Paul Marck – See magazine

“Top 10 of 2012…The disc’s focus on solo piano and trio tracks makes clearer than ever Rager’s stature as a player and composer of considerable substance and feeling.”    Peter Hum –
