„…one of the most characterful small jazz groups of recent times.“ – The Guardian / „The references span from surf rock, to chamber jazz to hyperarticulate “acoustica” club beats, all rendered with exquisite precision and heedless abandon…there are too many moments of brilliance to list here…“ – JazzTimes
„Throughout the decade of the 2000s, The Claudia Quintet recorded, toured, and became one of the top five progressive jazz units in the U.S. and the world. For 2010 they continue with Royal Toast, implying elegance and a golden brown, perfectly prepared, even buttery music. …Versace’s role is that of shading or propping up these melodies, and one should listen closely to his contributions here. It’s another extraordinary musical experience from the Claudia Quintet, who deserve all the high marks they receive as an innovative, thought-provoking, singularly unique contemporary ensemble.“
