“We express our wish that the Jack Mouse Group returns many times to the studio, creating similar images to this one.”  
Michael Czekus, Audiophile Online, Poland

“The Jack Mouse Group’s “Range Of Motion” is in the specialty of the solos and the bandleader’s underlying dictates of mood and movement. The group tends to soar when climbing purposefully on renegotiated rhythms, in a well-timed loop.”  

Carol Banks Weber, Examiner.com
“You’re in for one wonderful jazz ride – Jack’s drums will transport you to movements you never knew existed on this one!...It gets my MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98.”
Rotcod Zzaj, Improvijazzation Nation Magazine

“Jack’s drum style lies somewhere between Shelly Manne, Paul Motian and Joe Morello.  Loose, painterly and swinging. His writing style is a smorgasbord from swing and bebop to funk and free jazz.  A strong recording!”

Tim Wilcox, Jazz Society of Oregon

A novel exciting performance with superior musicians. EXCELLENT!”

Shigeyo Hyodo, Jazz Page, Japan

Mouse’s high-energy and sure-handed drumming is displayed front and center, but this is not simply a vanity project…(His) playing is expansive and complementary to every musician on every track.”

John Lane, Percussive Notes

“A drummer of free-wheeling strength, Mouse is an old-school guy. But there’s nothing

dated about his songs, which range from New Orleans-fueled to infectious tempo – changing to a lovely waltz.”  

Lloyd Sachs, Jazzespress



​“A solid presentation of compositional excellence coupled with a musicality that knows no limitations. Origin Records and Jack Mouse bang out another winner! 4 Stars!”   
Brent Black, Bop-N-Jazz

5 stars
​“Jack Mouse is mighty  on the drums, on technique and on assembling a group of pros
to bring this body of unique music together….a mixture of the hot new sound with an equal dose of nostalgia.  This quintet plays their hearts out and brings it right off the
surface into the space where magic dwells.”

“The record is appealing and refreshing thanks to Mouse's compositional skills and the high caliber artistry of all involved. “  

Hrayr Attarian, All About Jazz
“Range of Motion is neither fish nor fowl, beast nor mineral.  It embraces trad, modern, fusion, bop, swing and other jazz forms in a propulsively smooth format.”
Mark S. Tucker, Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange

“….Rivals anything in the classic Blue Note or Verve canon…..the fine sound of pros that know what they want and how to get it to you.  Well Done!”

Chris Spector, Midwest Record

“Mouse propels his bandmates forward with a fresh combination of energy and finesse.  At times caught up in a delightful swing and other times deliberately funky.”

John Barron, The Jazz Word 

Jack’s new recording…demonstrates his prowess as a marvelous player and a true artist.””  

Roy Burns, legendary drummer and CEO, Aquarian Drumheads

“A sure-handed, high energy drummer who dazzles with brushes.  A splendid album, 
​well-written (and quarterbacked) by Mouse and well-executed by everyone else. Thumbs Up!”

Jack Bowers, All About Jazz
