More than just a modern jazz album, Resonator references the jazz tradition while pursuing an array of rhythms and textures unique to Reuben's eclectic musical personality. The result is an album of rich musical diversity, where high art meets organic improvisation and eclectic contemporary grooves. This is eclectic original jazz music for the modern ear: energetic, expressive and conceptually inviting.
"The new generation of NZ jazz musicians has moved up several notches if the confident energy and conceptual awareness shown on this debut CD by Reuben Bradley's band is anything to go by."
- Mike Nock
"This new album on the immaculately presented and recorded Rattle Jazz imprint proves again there is a depth of New Zealand jazz talent to be encouraged and taken to a wider audience. There is a lot of fine playing and rewarding listening on this album . . . and something rather more challenging and therefore exciting than most other New Zealand jazz albums of the moment."
- Graham Reid
