Press

“Hiding Out is an adventurous, risk-taking, thoroughly well-crafted production that showcases the virtuosity of jazz composer, band leader and pianist Mike Holober. Joining him on this 2 CD-set is his New York based Gotham Jazz Orchestra, in three brilliant, large-scaled, and original big band compositions, and his arrangement of a classic A.C. Jobim tune”  
— Kabir Seghal, producer  

“Progressive modern jazz, brilliant soloists and great charts . . .”  
— JazzArtistryNow  

“The album "Hiding Out" contains many moments of beauty, of melodies that sing and harmonies that ring, with solos that have power and grace. Give this music the time it deserves to enter your mind (and heart) – its rewards are plentiful. Mike Holober & The Gotham Jazz Orchestra have made one splendid musical adventure!”  
— Richard B. Kamins, Step Tempest  

“The stream of sounds that emerge from this taut machine pulse and probe like a unified aqueous body in motion. Holober guides his group with precision, but like an impressionistic painter, he allows for the band to have its own organic aspiration, its own distinct vitality.”  
— Ralph A. Miriello, Notes on Jazz  

“Mike Holober has a daring compositional voice which is on full display in this release ”  
— Pierre Giroux, Audiophile Audition  

“Mike Holoder's Gotham Jazz Orchesta's latest release Hiding Out is a two disc set of awe-inspiring compositions . . . . The two discs comprise a full 93 minutes of powerful orchestral magic, full of emotion and splendor at every turn, with adventurous and complex arrangements, informed by classics of Gil Evans, Duke Ellington and many others. Perhaps as a listener the only thing better than absorbing this music off of the discs at hand would be experiencing it performed live.”  
— Peter Thelen, Exposé  

“Presenting a series of commissioned works—two suites bookended by two stand-alone pieces—Holober is in his element. Channeling nature's bounty into varied dimensions and directions, he manages to meld two of his loves—the great outdoors and sound itself—into enthralling functions and forms . . . . As with Holober's other albums and works for large ensembles, the material on Hiding Out is both serious and engrossing. Who says jazz can't fire the intellect and the imagination?”  
— Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz  

 “A sure handed modern master . . .  ”  
— Midwest Record Blog

"Articulate composer and astute arranger, the rhythmically adroit Holober must think in four dimensions to deliver the deeply satisfying development that is a hallmark of every track on the album . . . . Holober’s development captures your attention from moment to moment and carries you to liberating resolutions. The finely tuned orchestra delivers on his every command, and the soloists shine again and again." 

— Mel Minter, Musically Speaking
