"... one of the best Latin jazz albums of the year.... a beautifully arranged explosion of swing and technical precision." ED MORALES, Newsday
"This is what happens when musicians meet the highest standards - their own. A damn fine record." NED SUBLETTE, author of the acclaimed "Cuba and Its Music"
"Few CDs released this year more eloquently articulate the place where jazz and Latin culture converge than "Simpatico," featuring the veteran pianist-bandleader Palmieri and his younger but longtime collaborator, trumpeter Lynch." HOWARD REICH, Chicago Tribune
"The good feelings jump off some recordings, and this one jumps for sure... Lynch has done a masterful job at focusing his 17 contributors to salute Palmieri." JAMES HALE, Downbeat (4 stars)
"Lynch and Palmieri are arguably each the most important latin jazz voices of their respective generations, thanks in no small part to their writing and arranging abilities.... Simpatico could easily be the most important record jazz Latino audiences experience this year." Evan C. Gutierrez for ALL MUSIC GUIDE
"Lynch, trumpeter for Eddie Palmieri, is the leader in this immensely satisfying album... Palmieri's most impressive jazz/Latin collaboration since his 1966 El Sonido Nuevo with Cal Tjader. It is a major achievement for Lynch..." DOUG RAMSEY, Rifftides
