"He is the jazz world's most visible Renaissance man, a full time practicing psychiatrist, a medical school teacher, and a world class jazz musician." Don Heckman, LA Times

"...there was a sense of play, creativity and boldness; one felt the power of improvisation as a skill and as an almost philosophical endeavor." Ben Ratliff, NY Times

"By any measure, Zeitlin's output over the past 50 years places him at Jazz's creative zenith." Andrew Gilbert, JazzTimes
