Chaz Knapp - Withheld
"There’s a wonderful delicate craft to the work being presented on Withheld, which showcases Knapp as a composer whose paying attention to those minor details, the kind which help elevate the music to something more affecting."
- Echoes and Dust
"However interesting the experimental parts of the recording might be, it's the melodic-based content that, on this recording at least, speaks more powerfully on his music's behalf."
