The Anton Schwartz Quintet comes to us having recently headlined vanues such as Jazz at Lincoln Center (NY), Yoshi's Oakland, Blues Alley (D.C.), Kuumbwa Jazz, Bach Dancing & Dynamite, Dimitriou's Jazz Alley (Seattle), Vitello's (L.A.), and numerous major jazz festivals. They'll feature original compositions from Schwartz's latest release, Flash Mob. The CD was a runaway success on jazz radio—its 26-week run on the chart was just two weeks shy of the year's longest. Jazz critics point to the band's infectious performance energy, and the strength of Schwartz's compositions:

"★★★★… Just about all of these songs have the kind of shapely themes you can imagine other players wanting to cover." – Jon Garelick, DownBeat

"Impressive and virtually impossible to resist." – Jeff Simon, Buffalo News

"Schwartz has created a CD worthy of the best of 1960s Blue Note… there are several songs on this set that deserve to become future standards." – Scott Yanow, L.A. Jazz Scene
