“…a trombonist of such sweeping power and majesty that he transcends all styles.”
John Wilson, The New York Times

“In his sure hands this rather neglected instrument seems to take on a new life.”
Braad Thomsen, Politiken, Copenhagen

“Rudd gets more trombone out of his instrument than any colleague, past or present.”
Whitney Balliet, New Yorker Magazine

“The key transitional figure of the ’60’s was Rudd…in his own masterful album, Everywhere, he demonstrates a revitalization of expressive techniques and dynamic sensitivity.”
Gary Giddins, Village Voice

“Rudd extracts sounds from the trombone that go back to New Orleans and further ahead than anyone has yet reached.”
Nat Hentoff, Cosmopolitan
