JazzIs: gospel-raised, technically sumptuousChestnuts light touch and sauntering swing are captivating. His creative ebullience and in-the-moment spontaneity grab your attention throughout every moment.
Downbeat: Chestnut shows what pervasive spontaneity and deep swing rhythm are all about He remains, at heart, a jazz traditionalist, drawing upon the back-to-basics of blues- with a gospel-tinged vocabulary.
