"...a valuable sideman..." Bill Milkowski, JazzTimes Magazine

"...a talented instrumentalist to watch..." Barry Bassis, New York Resident Magazine

"They say you can begin to judge the talent, and character of a musician by the company that they keep. Well if that is the case, Australian transplant drummer Andrew Swift has a lot going for him." Jeff Krow, AudiophileAudition.com

"Drummer Andrew Swift belongs to a new generation of jazz artists that includes trumpeter Ryan Kisor and multi-instrumentalists Sharel Cassity and Michael Dease, all of whom...are well trained and steeped in tradition. However, tradition does not own their collective souls. All compose with a bright edge of intelligence and perform in the same way." C.Michael Bailey, AllAboutJazz.com

Swift’s compositions have, for the most part, distinctive and sometimes complex melody lines with an air of excitement at fast tempos and skill and passion on the ballads. George Fendel, Jazz Society of Oregon

Swift...provided potent propulsion elsewhere, and was appropriately reserved on brushes for 'Love's Lament,' the concert's sole ballad.” Chuck Obuchowski, The Hartford Courant

"Cables, Burno and Swift are masterful in their support and knowing when to push." Richard Kamins, Steptempest.blogspot.com
