"The compositions themselves are all impressive - you can hear a really strong grip over both melody and harmony…I think that Wade has already developed a mature style clearly influenced by all the big names he's played with over the years. His feel for thematic movement is very impressive. The way he can develop fairly simple ideas into complex things really comes through on several of the tracks on the album. Wade is impressive as a player too. In the ensemble he is always keeping interest and is good in conversation with his bandmates. And he is also a very adept soloist, often weaving long rows of thought out in thematically pleasing lines…I think event horizon is an impressive album from an artist who has now made a big name for himself in his native New York and increasingly more so worldwide…I thoroughly enjoyed the album."

2016

"This great album shows Wade's variety and range of talent...Wade shows a very inspiring touch on 'Singsong'. 'Valley and Stream' has a classical feel, showing a lyrical and dynamic spirit."

2015

"Wade's debut includes great tracks such as 'Jump for Joy', 'Apogee', and 'Cold Spring'. His solo parts are never too showy and his trio plays with a well-balanced sound. Their version of Harold Arlen's 'If I Only Had A Brain' is a wonderful track!"
