“Sandy is all the things that make a great musician; warm, creative, technically accomplished and all these are brightened by a sly wit. I love playing with Sandy; he is a bop wellspring, full of the phrases, quips, and asides of the language of American jazz music. You can always tell from the first when hearing a musician, if he has that true jazz integrity and identity; I heard it the the first time I heard Sandy. He’s able, with equal ability, to fashion a sadly beautiful melody, give a wry musical turn of phrase, or just plain swing you into the middle of next week. I look forward to the next installment of Caldwell/Suskind.”    
George Caldwell, NY Jazz pianist, is an alumnus of both the Duke Ellington and Count Basie orchestra, and is currently the pianist and musical director for the touring Broadway Musical Ella, about the life of Ella Fitzgerald.


“Sandy Suskind is without question the finest jazz flutist in the region. His sound is big, and his playing always soulful and passionate.  Imagine the fire and lines of Coltrane played with the sound of Herbie Mann and you get the idea.” 
–Phil DeGregarticle on The Blue Wisp 


“On John Coltrane’s “Countdown” flutist Sandy Suskind puts it into the upper register over a Latin jazz montuno, breathing fire along the way.” 
Jim Santellaallaboutjazz, J curve Vol II review

–Dan Karlsberg, pianist, composer

–Ed Moss, pianist, composer

“Working with Sandy Suskind has been a true pleasure!  He has the ability to musically communicate without technical boundaries, the humility of a true musician and a genius intellect in everything he does. Sandy Suskind generously offers his soul to the audience each time he performs, and that is what makes him amazing.”
–Michael Ronstadt, cellist, composer
