Radiant Blue hit number four on the US jazz radio charts, earning Schwartz a cover story in JazzWeek.
"Radiant Blue is a deep album.
-- Jazz Improv Magazine
"This is a first-class audiophile product."
-- Audiophile Audition
"[Schwartz] has a classic clear-throated tenor sound and kicks like a mule. His zeal to communicate is fervent yet sophisticated."
-- Jazz Times
"Schwartz blows with a warm, fluid tone, and great economy... his decisions all sound right... This ensemble shines.... The music bins are full of bluesy jazz albums; this one brims with optimism and intelligence."
-- JAZZIZ Magazine
