“The irreplaceable sound of the Hammond B3, nicely shaped by Bianchi’s fresh approach, strongly contributes to a sense of modernism steeped in tradition. Bianchi, a devotee of Joey DeFrancesco as a youngster, has established his own voice as an organist—something not easily done—and gives ample evidence why many regard him as the Next Big Thing on that venerable instrument.” -Victor Verney All About Jazz
