Recording title:  Suggestions

“Lark and McNeely’s rapport and interplay is always
tasteful and often breathtaking.”
-        Jack Bowers,
All About Jazz

“Lark’s solo on A Child Is Born is as beautiful as you’d
find anywhere, with his burnished flugelhorn tone as
warm as a hug from a loved one.”
-         Jeff Krow,  
Audiophile Audition

“This is creative and risk-taking music, played with
commitment and vitality that engages the listener.”
-         James Ketch,
International Trumpet Guild Journal
Recording title:  In Her Eyes

“The trumpeter plays with exuberance, skill and
feeling.”
-        Owen Cordle,
Jazz Times

“Bob Lark blows up a storm and altoist  Phil Woods
catches fire on this smoking quintet performance.”
-        Edward Blanco,
All About Jazz

“Lark wrote six of the ten tracks on this CD and his
taste, as well as his horn playing, is impeccable.  The
title track, In Her Eyes, is a gorgeous ballad and Phil
and Bob warmly express what must be a paean to a
beautiful woman.”
-        Jeff Krow,
Audiophile Audition

“This is one Lark whose song you must hear.”
-        Jack Bowers,
All About Jazz
Recording title:  Until You

“Lark’s soloing is art.  It is clear, distinctive, and as he
lays it in the groove, listeners will discover that his
musical language is well understood.  With artists
such as Bob Lark offering their talent to audiences
around the world, you can believe the art of jazz is in
great hands.”
-        Paula Edelstein,
All Music
Recording title:  First Steps

“Lark’s tunes are excellent, especially Cathy’s Song, a
wonderful ballad played beautifully by Lark, and Rum
Point, a catchy Bossa Nova.”        
-        Robert Allison, I
nternational Trumpet Guild Journal
Recording title:  Live At The Jazz Showcase

“The album captures the group's pulsating efforts in
churning out dazzling reads of four dynamic standards
and three Lark originals. As good as the previous
quintet collaboration was, this recording in some
respects seems to eclipse their first effort.”
-        Edward Blanco,
All About Jazz

“The Sound Mix is just right for a live recording and
Lark and Woods, as usual, make a good team. I
especially liked Lark's original compositions -
Ravenswood, Mad Dan's and Cathy's Song.”
-         Jeff Krow,  
Audiophile Audition

“This is what I call "the real deal." No pretense, no odd
combinations, nothing terribly outside or experimental.
And maybe that's why it's so good.”
-         George Fendel,
Jazz Society of Oregon

"That Lark doesn't Just hang but sounds like he
belongs is no small feat. His rich tone and lithe
phrasing are a great fit for Woods' relaxed swing."
-          Down Beat

BOB LARK'S CD REVIEWS
Recording title:  Cathy's Song

"We' ve  dug Bob Lark' s lyrical trumpet and flugelhorn
playing some time.  On Cathy's Song, we get an even
more exquisite warmness from his flugelhorn and
muted trumpet."
-        Jeff Krow,
Audiophile Audition

"Lark's playing throughout the disc and variety of
settings at a consistently high level of creativity and
execution."
-         Jersey Jazz

"Lark's using the flugelhorn on all but one track should
offer an unambiguos clue about it's purpose, which is
not to besiege but to seduce.  That it does and does
well."
-         Jack Bowers,
All About jazz

"Winter's Touch, a Lark original, is pure poetry, marked
by tricky key changes and some of Reid's best
comping under McNelly's piano."
-        Harvey Siders,
Jazz Times

Recording title:  Reunion

“There’s some sterling silver soloists among the
group, and Lark himself is a player of great gifts.”   
-      George Fendel,
Oregon Jazz Society

“It would certainly not be farfetched to assert that the
caliber of players in this orchestra is world-class in
every respect.”
-      Edward Blanco,
All About Jazz


“Lark is a superior talent and more than holds his own
with legendary talent like Phil Woods.  I especially dug
Winter’s Touch, a ballad that highlights Lark’s
prowess on the Flugelhorn.  Tango Caliente closes
the big band’s classy issue with more evidence of
how their strong ensemble playing contributes to an
alumni big band that honors its leader.”
-      Jeff Krow,
Audiophile Audition (1/9/12)

“This is a first-class big band recording by talented
musicians who are dedicated to serving the music
they (we) love.  Congratulations on a topnotch
recording!  …Kind of makes me wish I’d gone to
DePaul.”
-      Jeff Hamilton
,
drummer/co-leader, Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra

“These cats can play and write.  This is good music,
well thought out, well played with great solos by all.”
-      Phil Woods
, alto saxophonist/composer/band leader
