Hobgood… has crafted deeply considered arrangements, no two alike, each providing multiple twists and turns… The caliber and finesse of his writing were instantly apparent … In all of this music, Hobgood merged accessibility and sophistication, intertwining jazz, pop and classical idioms. The packed house embraced the endeavor, judging by the crescendo of ovations it received.   Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune
