“An intensity and sensitivity that is spellbinding."
- Jazz Review (Returning)
“Gluck makes the case that often what should be most valued is also what is most hidden.”
- NYC Jazz Record (Miles Davis Lost Quintet)
The Miles Davis Lost Quintet:
George Lewis: “a radical challenge to accepted portrayals of the networks that animated experimental music-making in the crucial decade of the 1970s.”
Stanley Cowell: “will be an important contribution to music literature and study.”
All About Jazz: “a compelling narrative of artistic ambitions and human nature.”
