"A piano recital program with a difference"
"The pianist's exuberance and confident attack on the keyboard tied his unusual program together"

"It gives me great pleasure to hear this concerto (Shickele's Concerto for Piano and Chorus). Justin is doing a terrific job with it. He has to handle styles that range from Bach's cadenza in the Fifth Brandenburg Concerto to Lenny Tristano bee-bop."
— Peter Schickele
"The piano works, played with panache by Justin Kolb, have similarly wide stylistic range, mingling tonal and atonal elements but usually melodious and always listerner-friendly."
— The Washington Post
