ali berkok - never get lost for long: album review at exclaim.ca

"Ali Berkok's first solo effort could well have come from a senior artist with several releases behind them; the emotional and intellectual depth of both the original work and interpretations of works by Berlin, Coltrane and Meath/Sanborn display a willingness to consider everything possible and not be restricted to a set mode of interpretation..."

ali berkok - never get lost for long: album review at thewholenote.ca

"..one of the most adventurous recordings by a Canadian in a considerable length of time. Angular, with a proverbial doffing of the hat towards minimalism, Berkok’s playing is exhilarating, extroverted and virtuosic. Simple as it seems it actually presents rather formidable technical challenges, all of which are surmounted almost with nonchalance. Berkok has a particularly rewarding sense of rhythm, high-sprung, light and incisive, and entirely secure. John Coltrane’s Giant Steps is particularly brilliant, also played with no-holds-barred intuition." - Raul da Gama
