Praise for debut album “Sliding On Glass”

“High minded piano jazz like you would expect from an analytical mind that grew up digging King Crimson, she knows her way round making some sitting down, listening jazz that keeps you mesmerized in your seat.” — Chris Spector, Midwest Record, December 29, 2018

“[Sliding On Glass] is highly enjoyable and engaging. It showcases Night’s versatility and her skills as a composer and performer as well as the cohesive synergy of the band. Given this and the variety of the material within Sliding on Glass will definitely have a wide appeal.” — Hrayr Attarian, Chicago Jazz Magazine, January 28, 2019

“A clever mix of interpretations from Boomer radio hits.” — George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly, February 28, 2019

“The Judy Night Quintet have a  terrific sense of tone and melody, playing in a very relaxed way, with high levels of communication, interplay and harmony.  It’s a wonderful listen.” — Jim Hymes, “Making A Scene”, January 7, 2019

“Really interesting sonic palette she uses! Nice comps.” — Bradley Stone, “The Creative Source”, January 31, 2019
