Jazz Times
 
"One of the best and most vibrant young sax players in the business" - Blues Revue
 
"A one-man renaissance for the driving, highly danceable and decidedly manic late-'40s style of "honkin' " sax playing championed by the likes of Illinois Jacquet and Big Jay McNeely...performs with a skill and taste, frequently careening to the edge of glorious chaos" - Living Blues
 
"Serious bar-walking, hornblattin', groove juiced, fired up, screaming blues saxophone" - Big City Blues

"...the leading torchbearer of the sax-fired music that became rock and roll." - the Boston Phoenix

"(Sax Gordon) has a huge, full-blooded tone on his tenor and great execution to boot...evokes the spirit of sax rave-up men Junior Walker, King Curtis, Oliver Sain and Louis Jordan."   
Blues Access
