The New Republic / Changing of the Garde: "What sets Eskelin apart from his peers--and they are numerous; there are a dozen young tenor players with fantastic ability on the scene today--is that he has steadfastly refused to hew to one tradition or line of thought. For all their technical skill, the best of today's players often don't have a personal sound or approach, and it can be hard to tell them apart. This is not to say they're not making good--sometimes compelling--music." (Thanks, Matthew)
