The critics say about Sweeter Than the Day:
.. a great showcase for Horvitz's beautiful compositions, his really strange,
angular chord progressions.
Ned Wharton, NPR's Weekend Edition
Horvitz' understanding of country, blues, folk and even singer-songwriter-type
music is made quite plain on this CD. None of these elements are represented in
an obvious way, and that's perhaps the main reason why this disc appeal so
strongly. The strength of the music lies in Horvitz' beautifully crafted
compositions. Like Monk and Herbie Nichols, Horvitz is able to create memorable
and distinctive melody lines from seemingly disparate, even mundane, motifs
Dave Wayne, Jazz Weekly
Four stars) **** ... this set probably subverts most UK-audience assumptions
about Horvitz ... its' offbeat lyricism and trancelike guitar-blues atmosphere.
A real surprise.
John Fordham, The Guardian (London)
American Bandstandís Benís Music, Love, Love, Love and Forever are among the
most beatific melodies youíll hear this year.
