"Yaniv Taubenhouse is definitely poised to be one of the new young lions of jazz to watch out for and his impressive Here from There debut, is a serious musical statement. Taubenhouse provides an enjoyable session of music where jazz and classical merge to forge one of the finest trio performances found on today's jazz landscape." - Edward Blanco, All About Jazz
"Few younger-generation players would be capable of a similar deconstruction of Time After Time, or following it with the intense uplift of Hope. New talent comes along with the seasons; fresh new talent is somewhat rarer and more precious." - Brian Morton, Jazz Journal
