–>  Review of GOLDEN RULE in THE VINY PRESS by Bill Hart
“… you get the sen­se that this Medi­ter­ra­ne­an island off the coast of Spain, with its sun splas­hed vis­tas of oce­an and moun­tains, its­elf play­ed a role in influ­en­cing the sound and shape of Muri­el Grossman’s work: the­re is gre­at beau­ty here, and a mix of cul­tu­ral influ­en­ces that, like the island, lend a uni­que feel to the pro­cee­dings …”

–>  Review of GOLDEN RULE in All­Mu­sic gui­de by Thom Jurek
“… Gol­den Rule is Grossmann’s tenth album and it’s deep. This is the third date with her cur­rent quar­tet, … The com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ve intui­ti­on of this group is not only empa­thic, it seems tele­ki­ne­tic in its anti­ci­pa­ti­on, colo­ra­ti­on, and arti­cu­la­ti­on of Grossmann’s inspi­red com­po­si­ti­ons infor­med direc­t­ly by medi­ta­ti­on. …  Gol­den Rule is an 87-minu­te jour­ney; it soot­hes, pro­vo­kes, exhorts, cajo­les, and beck­ons the lis­tener ever deeper into its inner arti­cu­la­ti­ons of peace and tur­bu­lence in Grossmann’s always affir­ma­ti­ve lan­guage that is as pregnant with spi­ri­tu­al mea­ning as it is breath­ta­king sophisti­ca­ti­on.” and Bio­gra­phy in All­Mu­sic gui­de by Thom Jurek

–>  Review in Chi­ca­go-based Dus­ty Groo­ve record store
“Sea­ring work from saxo­pho­nist Muri­el Gross­mann – a play­er who clear­ly draws a lot of inspi­ra­ti­on from late 60s John Col­tra­ne – but who also turns out a record here that’s com­ple­te­ly her own! … – This is deep stuff – not an easy nod to the spi­ri­tu­al sce­ne, but a much richer record – extre­me­ly well-con­cei­ved and exe­cu­t­ed.” Dus­ty Groo­ve

–>  Hono­ura­ble men­ti­on en UK VIBE ! ‘ GOLDEN RULEALBUM OF THE MONTH DEC 2018’
” Muri­el Grossmann’s Quar­tet evo­ke the true beau­ty, sin­ce­ri­ty and joy of Col­tra­ne, whilst suc­cess­ful­ly musi­cal­ly sin­ging out in their own voice, crea­ting new ide­as with a refres­hing ver­ve and skill. “Gol­den Rule” is qui­te sim­ply an incredi­ble album, inven­ti­ve, full of cha­rac­ter, and to my ears, a musi­cal joy to behold.”  Mike Gates, review for UK Vibe


–>  ‘Gol­den Rule’ review by Andrew Jones in Down­beat, USA  Dec 2018, p 64
“Gol­den Rule con­veys medi­ta­ti­ve tran­qui­li­ty and ecsta­tic joy  …  Gross­mann show­ca­ses her abi­li­ty to get the best of a tune melo­di­cal­ly. She plays a solo so lyri­cal every bar feels like a dis­cre­te com­po­si­ti­on … The dyna­mism of its soloists and the quartet’s tele­ki­ne­tic per­for­mance deli­vers the album’s aim: pro­vi­ding a lis­ten­ing expe­ri­ence akin to trans­cen­dence.” 
Andrew Jones

–>  ‘Gol­den Rule’ review by Leo­nid Aus­kern in Jazz­Quad, Bela­rus, 2018
“Tra­ne, espe­ci­al­ly the late Tra­ne, regar­ded music as a kind of sacred, spi­ri­tu­al act. Fol­lo­wing him, Muri­el Gross­man aspi­res to the same spi­ri­tua­li­ty in her music, and — damn it! — she’s gre­at at it! … I con­si­der her new pro­ject GOLDEN RULE to be the crea­ti­ve pin­na­cle of this talen­ted jazz lady and her stron­gest work up to this date.” Leo­nid Aus­kern

“… by its struc­tu­re inde­ed, its flam­boyant path, its moving chants and the solar flights of the saxo­pho­ne, Momen­tum can be read as a poi­gnant homage to A Love Supre­me … And Momen­tum: a monu­ment of what is cal­led spi­ri­tu­al jazz. ” Marc Sar­ra­zy

” … Gross­mann is clear­ly in con­trol as she uses tenor, alto and sopra­no to lead band and lis­tener on a jour­ney that takes off like a mis­si­le, pas­ses through medi­ta­ti­on, reaches nir­va­na and ends with thanks­gi­ving … ” Elli­ot Simon
