Generations evokes the heyday when Blue Note, Prestige and Cadet Records were issuing jukebox 45-rpm singles of hard-bop and soul-jazz classics…There’s not a false note on Generations as Turre delivers a superb manifesto on the poignancy of intergenerational brilliance devoid of hyperbole or homiletics.”
— John Murph, DownBeat

“When 2022 nears its conclusion and the annual best-of lists are compiled, there’s no doubt that Generations will rank high on every tabulation.”
— Arturo Gomez, KUVOJazz Denver 98.3
