"I imagine a talk with Gary Gray would be a rewarding experience. If his clarinet playing is a guide, he would be a perfect conversationalist, as ready to listen as to contribute a well-turned phrase. The jazzy wit of copland and the urbane good humor of Arnold both benefit from Gray's subtle artistry."

"Gray's exemplary performance of the Rossini variations is a new B flat Clarinet version...he is a first-rate player!"
—Clarinet and Saxophone Magazine

"A gifted colorist, this soloist exhibits with rare intelligence his instrument's large palette of sonorities, particularly in the Dance Preludes of Lutoslawski. Gray is a musician who deserves our special attention."
—Diapason Magazine, France

"Gray's tender and varied version of the Copland Concerto gives equal prominence to the work's lyric spans and its more obvious jazz's a terrific recording."
—Los Angeles Times

"Gray may have the best sound of any clarinetist in the music business. I recommend this Sonata CD which is a highly-polished piece of work and enjoyable throughout."
—Fanfare Magazine

"An album of twentieth century favorites which received fine performances from this accomplished American artist. His warm round tone is used to maximum effect on works such as the Debussy Rhapsodie and the Saint-Saëns Sonata, whilst pieces such as the Bernstein Sonata and Malcolm Arnold Sonatina are brimming with excitement and display Gray's impressive technique. Clifford Benson's accompaniments are, as usual, superb."
