“I swear, Walk the Bike is the happiest, sweetest, goofiest, most optimistic album I've heard in a long time, without -- get this -- ever being smarmy or sappy or stupid ... positively uplifting ... arrangements that are simple and perfect..."-- Holly Day The Big Takeover MusicDish Industry e-Journal musicdish.com

Bliwas transforms intricate phrases into seamless music that has flow to go along with the freedom he exhibits in his playing. He has produced an engrossing creative album." -- Cadence Magazine"

Bliwas walks the line between jazz and folkrock with confidence, producing a dialectic sound that compliments rather than conflicts. His lyrics range from profound to silly to cryptic but always with something to say ." -- Shredding Paper

poetic mystic ...other dimensional access..." --Kate Smith, Jazz Radio Promoter

Jazzy, bluesy, uncategorizable work. Eclectic. Quite a cast of players, too! --Brent Wilcox KEUL Jazz Director

Beatles doing rock... but in his way, doing jazz. --Barry Gaston KMUW

Bliwas' Walk the Bike definitely sets it's own boundaries. --Mike Rz WDPS-FM

Walk the Bike. It's way cool..... sort of like early Steely Dan, if they were all sniffing model glue! I love this record --Ray Graf -- All Things Considered

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
