Cadence Magazine:

“The clearly talented Olsen is the exception, as he constantly pushes at the limits of his musical knowledge, with a conversational tone and long flowing lines that move with an inner logic and force.  Keep you ears open for him.”


Bob Blumenthal - Boston Globe:

“Doug took honors, however, with a flugelhorn statement on I Waited for You that balanced a strong attack with rich melodic ideas.  Olsen also wrote the set's lone flag waiver Good Bread, Bad Jelly.”
