Classica – Jean‐Pierre Jackson
“We had not heard similar elegance since the wonders recorded by Art Farmer and Jim Hall.”
“Orland uncorks many a long line, impressive with the snakiness and immediacy of his cool‐toned playing. Garzone is predictably strong, and I also like the limber, fluent playing of the young Bangalore-based pianist Sharik Hasan.”
“If Jonathan is the leader of his quintet, each musician brings his own style and his musical personality, offering an interesting perspective.“

“At age 26, saxophonist Jonathan Orland has handled the pressure of a debut recording like a chief. Homes reflects the energy of surpassing oneself. The music in this album sounds fresh and relaxed, in full growth.”
Jazz News - Christian Larrede
“Between classicism and modernity, Orland’s playing is impressive with its inventiveness and virtuosic character.”
Vibrations - Eric Delhaye
“His first album, Homes, has the virtue of the foundations: sank in Coltrane ‘s legacy, compositions and interpretations are flawless.”
Jazz Magazine - Jacques Aboucaya
“Jonathan Orland belongs to a category of young musicians whose superlative technique allows them to dominate their instrument so perfectly that they give the impression to overcome every difficulty with ease, even on fast tempos. He demonstrates some uplifting boldness in the way he treats harmonies and a real capacity to compose beautiful melodies”.
bobhatteau.blog.lemonde.fr – Bob Hatteau
“Homes is a very tonic album in the spirit of times, with an overall hard-bop sound as well as incursions into Free Jazz”.
Citizen Jazz - Jean-Claude Pennec
"Orland, goes from a radiant Be Bop to a cheerful 'cool' like a funambulist, savoring every musical moment, between heaven and earth."
