"Rhythm Changes is 'Fantastic!'"
           - Kim Clark; WNCW 88.7 FM

"The recording/production quality is excellent, with each element clean and easy to hear. Strong timbral contrast makes for a satisfying ensemble sound". 

"Tons of great lines (in the Italian Restaurant Blues). I can't even count the number of clever rhymes... and the vocal delivery brings it home. Great job, Joseph!" 
- TAXI A&R Staff

"To hear the polished acoustic jazz of Joseph Hasty's new album 'Rhythm Changes', you would never guess that music is not his full-time profession... the lyrics in many of the songs are amusing and light-hearted..."
          - Gina Smith: Charlotte Observer

"I have selected cuts 5, 7 and 11 for inclusion in regular rotation on my program 'Heartstrings'. Thank you!"
 - Mel Lowe; WSGE  91.7 FM
