“The dynamic duo of pianist David Kikoski and bassist Boris Kozlov is a triumph of musicality and virtuosity. There’s some kind of magic happening between the two kindred spirits that goes beyond the notes… Whenever Kikoski and Kozlov combine their respective talents and uncanny rapport, it’s a Sure Thing.”

- Bill Milkowski

“Dave has so much feeling. He can play anything. I can depend on him for so much.” - Roy Haynes

"As an affecting modernist, Dave distills the best in jazz and popular music and infuses every song with attention-garnering brilliance."
