"I have to say, I’ve been doing this for almost fifty years professionally, and I’ve worked with some of the greatest clarinetists in the world. This fifteen-year-old young man, Nathan, is playing at a level I’ve seldom heard the depth of understanding of New Orleans Jazz as I’ve heard coming out of that horn of anybody."
- Steve Pistorius, Pianist, New Orleans
"Comforting to see the future of jazz in such capable hands as those of Nathan."
