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 Review - Richard Bliwas: Walk the Bike
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" Richard Bliwas - Reviews
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"
If it's possible for an album to sound like a city, then Bliwas' CD Walk the Bike sounds like New York. Not the noisy traffic jam New York, but the quiet back streets where musician's assemble to create magic. -- HitSession Review: Richard Bliwas
Jazzy, bluesy, uncategorizable work. Eclectic. Quite a cast of players, too! -- Brent Wilcox KEUL Jazz Director
