“Sharp-edged, driving, metallic chording, stinging single notes, and the seemingly effortless ability to move back and forth between the two modes.”
-Dan McClenaghan, All About Jazz
“Corban is a no-nonsense player who can manage blistering chops without losing an in-the-pocket relaxed feel.”
-John Barron, The Jazz Word
