"Jazz Corner"

"Time in Transit operate with a slick smoothness; these songs are shockingly accessible, decorated with enough melodic hooks to reel in the unenlightened."
–Jazz Corner - Jazz Corner

"Audiophile Audition"

"White is as accomplished a composer and band leader as saxophonist . . . The band, Sacred Machines – apparently a working unit – is a marvel . . . If Glenn White can keep producing discs of this quality, he is assured a long and productive career in the world of jazz." - Audiophile Audition


"This is credible and interesting music." -

"GoGo Magazine"

"The saxophone looks like it is an extension of his hands, easily connecting to mouth, mind and body. His is a thoughtful, remarkable style." - GoGo Magazine

"Improvijazzation Nation"

"It's clear that his playing stems from a deeper understanding." - rotcoD zzaJ


"A brilliant gem . . . tremendous chops on tenor saxophone as well as his prolific talents in jazz composition . . . Glenn White's music and band [are] at the level of playing that they could stand their own ground with world-class jazz artists." -

"The Silent Ballet"

"White is an accomplished, versatile tenor saxophonist."
- The Silent Ballet


"A bit wild and zealous through the improvisations, Glenn White’s album, Sacred Machines shows unconformity and sheer sleekness in its melodic lines. His ensemble takes chances but also keeps their melodic proportions palatable. New York-based White creates contemporary jazz textures steep in tradition and post-bop freedom. You can hear the evolution of jazz in White’s compositions as he applies a modern approach to archetypal jazz idioms."
– (Susan Frances) -

"Muzik Reviews"

"Time In Transit live up to the sterling reputation that jazz bands from NYC have maintained for decades." - Muzik Reviews

"Get Out! (East Valley Tribune)"

"I've just got one thing to say – Glenn White, you rock!"
- Get Out! (East Valley Tribune)

"Arizona Republic"

"White freely admits being influenced by all sorts of things from Coltrane to the Cure. Certainly, he's got the talent to bring these two worlds of music together." - Arizona Republic

"Midwest Record"

"You can tell right away this is a highly creative cat with an ear for exploration." - Midwest Record
