“No one around plays like pianist Jim Gala. At first, I couldn’t figure out what he was doing musically; I couldn’t analyze the music. It was just too beautiful and beyond my scope. All I could do was let the music wash over me and accept its effect. Jim is one of my musical idols. He is a real soul man. No one plays like him. His musical philosophy sensibility and taste are impeccable. He changed my life with his music. I actually quote him often and wrote about him in my book.”—J. Riley Cain, Jazz anthologist
“Cuenca is blessed to have such an artist in Jim Gala. I’ve played with some of the greats on both sides of the Atlantic, yet I have never heard such a transformative unique jazz pianist as Jim Gala. Simply put he’s a true musical genius.” —Bill Scott, Broadway Singer, & Arranger
“The jazz was better than bands I’ve heard at NYC jazz clubs, and the food was delicious. It was a delightful and memorable experience.” —Frank Mangione
“Jim Gala is a great talent, among the greatest jazz piano players alive. His creativity and musical depth enriches one’s soul.” —James R. Hill, jazz trumpeter
