"...a postmillennial Chet Baker...on So It Goes, Matt Shulman further polishes atrumpet and vocals package." - The New York Times " quote the dead-on laconic judgment of Miles Davis - the cat can play. ...better, in fact, than Chet Baker ever could... Shulman is that rare trumpet player to play multiphonically (i.e. play more than one tone at the same time)... he's as happy to use electronics as Radiohead and to add wordless vocalises to his music a la Pat Metheny....and he has serious good old-fashioned chops, too  more than enough to scare current critical darling Dave Douglas off the stand (if he wanted to)... new in the direction of jazz...something that hasn't been heard repeatedly for the past three decades." - The Buffalo News "...trumpeter and loop enthusiast Shulman rocking...really does live up to its Chet Baker-meets-Radiohead comparative hype..." -IRT Magazine "Young, intense and innovative...trumpeter, vocalist and composer Matt Shulman makes multidimensional and striking music...Combining vocal influences from jazz and rock...suggests Radiohead's Thom Yorke bred with Chet Baker... Shulman's fresh approach is a welcome addition to the jazz melting pot." - New Jersey Star Ledger "JAZZED OUT: Trumpeter Matt Shulman comes off like a modern-day Chet Baker or Rahsaan Roland Kirk on "So It Goes" (Jaggo, A-). The edge sharpening comes with his use of loops and split-mouth virtuosity to simultaneously blow and sing in a phat, progressive style." -The Philadelphia Daily News "...equally adept at lovely, lyrical horn lines...he quickly moves off the map used by most of his contemporaries, bound for unexplored territory...his wild inventiveness adds intrigue and excitement to music that refuses to put safety first." - Beyond Playlist
