When Brandon plays the piano people become delighted with his music, not just Jazz appreciators but people, folks. He is a people's champion... Along with all of the cleverness, the sophistication and the tasteful choices, this young man is swinging—swinging hard...Brandon is as affecting as any other new artists appearing on the scene today. I am a fan."
– Monty Alexander Pianist/Composer
