“Trumpeter Jason Klobnak has a knack for creating inviting and exciting music.”

Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz September 19th, 2013

“Listening to ‘Mountain, Move’ one is compelled to wiggle to mid tempo numbers “Back and Forth”, “Jardin de Tuileries” and “Sego” – that certain bounce a la Roy Hargrove has become a feel hugely favored throughout the Mile High City’s twenty- and thirty- something Jazzers. You’ll find your fingers poppin’ of their own accord to the bright Silveresque swinger “U.L.T.”. Most striking to this listener is the wisdom and tenderness of Klobnak’s ballads “Where Would I Go?” and the title composition: I’ve not yet seen a mountain move, but I myself am by the music of these five players. It’s a great time to be a Jazz fan in Denver. Listen to ‘Mountain, Move’ and hear for yourself.”

“Klobnak’s ear is very acute in guiding his aural vision of jazz. Mountain, Move is an exceptional recording that bristles with creativity and inventiveness, all within the confines of consonant jazz.”

C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz August 3, 2013

Klobnak is a stand out trumpeter as well as composer, and his quintet is full to the brim with equally exceptional talent. “
