- Louie Bellson
"My favorite saxophonist to come along in years, and that flute!"
- Stan Getz
"The result is so musical, I feel certain BIRD himself is somewhere, somehow, smiling wicked approval." (Duet with Karrin Allyson on "Yardbird Suite")
- Rex Reed
"I've never heard eighth-note lines that truly hung together played so fast as alto saxophonist Kim Park plays them in this cut ("Cherokee" @ 400BPM).
- Frank Conroy, NY Times/Esquire
"...Alto Saxophonist Kim Park and vetran trumpeter Jack Sheldon were the perfect partners for [Stan] Getz...A superb concert in total, but highest marks for all soloists are reserved for Park [who] plays with great rhythmic sense, clear logic and keen emotion. Park tells his solo stories with a clear beginning, middle and end..."
- William Johnson, Palo Alto Times-Tribune
"...Sax player Kim Park followed the [Wynton] Marsalis group with a really grand program. The up-front vitality of his Vince Guaraldi tribute, Lucy's Revenge, and his Kansas City salute, Strollin' on 12th Street, had all the swing and zest that completely captivates large audiences..."
- Mike Weatherford, Kansas City Star
"Stop practicing and mow the yard!"
- John Park
