" Hershkovits shows a breathtaking melodic genius...The spontaneous sense of the pianist, the clarity of his swing, his taste for oriental ornaments, his sweetness of feeling -- finally belong to him fully.
Hershkovits has found the means of expression that best suits his deeply artistic temperament...
-- So many reasons to run to his show and see him play. "
-- Louis-Julien Nicolaou, Télérama
"Nitai Hershkovits is a remarkable Pianist...Somewhat reminiscent of a silky-toned old piano swinger such as the late Hank Jones."
-- John Fordham, The Guardian
"Hershkovits dances on the keys with the elegance of Fred Astaire and the melancholic wit of Charlie Chaplin! "
-- Cem Akalin, General Anzeiger Bonn
"Hershkovits' touch is stately and refined, an emotionally attuned player."
-- Brian Zimmerman, Downbeat Magazine
"Hershkovits is a genuine prodigy - still only in his mid-20s but already playing with relaxed authority."
-- The New York Times
"A luminous, moving and immensely inventive pianist"
-- Télérama Magazine, Paris, France
"Nitai Hershkovits plays with an attractive tone and elegant poise, and the way he tackles something like 'All of You' is how you imagine a contemporary pianist such as Brad Mehldau might do it."
-- Selwin Harris, Jazzwise Magazine
"The album is a wonderfully thoughtful collection of tunes that is refreshingly different to much else on offer"
-- Andy Hazell, UK Vibe Magazine on 'I Asked You A Question'
"Hershkovits was still in his early 20's when the duo recorded Duende but his style and confidence demonstrate a mature talent and sensibility."
-- Bruce Lindsay, All About Jazz
