What critics say about Honor Thy Fathers:
“Overall the ambiance is warm, dark and reflective, which is not to discount Hobgood’s strategically big, broad voicings, streaming glissandi and consistently perfect articulation.” – Howard Mandel, DOWNBEAT
“A sublime statement,” – Michael J. West, JAZZ TIMES
“Just as Honor Thy Fathers can be considered Hobgood’s strongest recording to date, this band may provide his best musical forum yet, opening a major new chapter in his career.” – Howard Reich, CHICAGO TRIBUNE
