"At least two things about Gelb are quite clear. First, he's an incurable romantic, and second, he's a consistently impressive songwriter. Gelb's songs are imbued with warmth and perception and I'd not be surprised if some of them have enough staying power to become standards."

SONG FOR PICKLES
"Larry Gelb has concocted a deeply personal album of originals. Bringing this often engaging material vividly to life is a first class ensemble - the extraordinary Dick Oatts, big-toned Cameron Brown, and highly musical drummer Matt Wilson on drums. Gelbs solos bounce and flow. Intimate sounds."
- Zan Stewart, The Star Ledger

DAUGHTERS AND LOVERS
''An exemplary vision of what the music should say to the listener. Gelb communicates well, not least through his compositions, all of which are melodically appealing and harmonically sound. 'The Love Of My Life ' is a standout, as are the tributes to his daughters and the gutsy 'Blues For Rachel Ward ' - and Gelb plays each one with an unerring sense of its inner beauty and outward charm. A consistently pleasing and inventive piano trio session."
- Jack Bowers Cadence
