"What would the old master have thought? The first classical CD is impeccable Bach as only the finest virtuosos can deliver, both sensitive and powerful. But the second CD? It's a jazzed version of Bach on amphetamines and wearing dark glasses - outrageous …and brilliant! Hard not to smile and tap your toe. You may never feel the same way about Bach again."
"What happens when genius, humor and virtuosity meet up in one chubby Russian/American piano player? Some of the best jazz improvisation and classical ambrosia you may have ever experienced… Valeri Grohovski is Oscar Peterson reincarnated, only this time with a hint of a Russian accent."
