Kites Over Havana displays a group that understands the nuance of the saxophone and how it has a place in modern chamber music. Whether or not the quartet continues to compose Cuban-inspired music is neither here nor there as long as they continue to release music as stunning as this.

Bird is the Worm by David Sumner
At times buoyant and other times reverential, the music conjures up imagery just begging to be married to a story. And perhaps it already is.

Downtown Music Gallery by Bruce Lee Gallanter
The Vitral Saxophone Quartet show a completely other side to the sax quartet sound, sometimes austere and restrained yet just as rich in color in more subtle ways.

Latin Jazz Corner Review By CHIPBOAZ
The Vitral Saxophone Quartet is a group with an interesting approach that challenges many of our notions about jazz saxophone...These musicians are each coming from a classical background, but they also are strongly connected to jazz. As a result, their performances are structured around the aesthetics of classical music but integrate jazz harmonies and improvisation.
