“Multi-Reedist Steven Lugerner leads his septet featured on one half of his recent double-CD release (the half titled Narratives, to be exact), showing off his songful, cinematic midsize-ensemble works.” - Time Out New York

“There’s something to be said for making an auspicious debut. A Bay Area-born musician who recently moved to New York City and has collaborated with Fred Hersch, Jason Moran and Miguel Zenón, young multi-reedist Steven Lugerner released a double-album in his first recording as a bandleader, the sprawling and unpredictable These Are the Words/Narratives. Lugerner will be at Royal T on July 20th with his septet to celebrate the release ofNarratives." - Chris Barton (Los Angeles Times)

“Narratives & These Are The Words are both dedicated to Lugerner's incisive original compositions, tunes that provide sturdy structures for rambunctious, melodically inventive improvisation. Among the most consistently exhilarating albums released so far this year, Lugerner’s debut immediately establishes his status as a heavyweight himself.”   - Andy Gilbert (Berkeleyside.com)
