" An unequivocally modern record that focuses on both his compositional acumen and a broader textural palette . . . it’s about time that the secret already known amongst musicians finally becomes public knowledge.” - John Kelman, All About Jazz

"With each track, Tom reveals more and more about his own musicianship. He displays incredible delicacy, fierce attack, longing melodic intonations and just why he chose these four musicians to accompany him on this album’s journey.” “His own space creation and vibrant virtuosity are the centerpiece of this group. Name any guitarist-Metheny, Frisell, Scofield-comparison falls far short or fails entirely because Tom Guarna is his own guitarist. With albums like ‘Rush,’ he can also belong to us.”-Travis Rogers jr. Jazz Times

“ . . . There’s plenty to dig on here, emotion, tension, surprise, swing, passion . . . quite beautiful . . .” -Downbeat Magazine
