Jason Berlin

Reilly really heats up the keys!
I really love Pure Passion and I cant wait to try out other works by Jack. Pure Passion is a very soothing compilation of solo works that really gets you to step into a calm relaxed state in a seemingly busy and hectic world.

Loren Toolajian

This CD is a remarkable exploration of the harmonic possibilities in music. Reilly uses each tune as a springboard for improvisations of amazing clarity, sonority, and curiosity. His playing is always "of the moment," neither contrived nor studied. It's as though his fingers follow where his ears lead him: "let's try that, now here, now over there." There's no artifice, no ego, just music. This is profound music-making. Check it out.

Andrew Sutherland

The spirit of Keith Jarrett lives on
Very enjoyable, pensive stuff - if you like Keith Jarrett's more daring introspective moments you'll no doubt find much to take to your bosom here. Savvy and grounded in melancholy. One to savor alone.
