Marty Delia – The Jazz Music Blog (Australia)
“All in all, a very fine debut disc for a jazz bassist who shows considerable promise. I give it five fish!”
Lynn Bayley – Art Music Lounge
“Robertson establishes the authority of bass playing at the first notes of the opening "East of the Sun" in which he states the melody as Margut comps behind him. He plays comfortably taking the lead as well as keeping time and his full tone and his melodic sense underlie the strong playing here… A bass solo, "Maven's Arrival," again showcases Robertson's robust attack and tone, and his ability to structure a melodic improvisation. It closes Robertson's most appealing recording debut”.
Ron Weinstock – In A Blue Mood
“Robertson is the coolest bass player to pluck the strings since Eldee Young passed”
