“A connoisseur's connoisseur of pop-music esoterica,
Mr. Comstock is the truest heir to the much-missed Bobby Short:
a dispenser of cabaret caviar.
Swinging precision and good-humored warmth … a knack for storytelling …
An unusually insightful interpreter of lyrics …
Meet the new fun couple on the cabaret block. Mr. Comstock and Ms. Fasano are turning the neighborhood into a hotbed of pleasure.”
“An icon in the making ... erudite ...
seems to have been born and raised in a cabaret.”
“Comstock has a voice that flows as smoothly as rye and sweet vermouth over ice,
evoking Chet Baker, Mel Torme and Mark Murphy.”
“Swinging, artistic and superbly entertaining.”
“Comstock has entertainment savvy to match his extensive knowledge of classic pop …
the perfect mix for bringing yesteryear squarely into this year.”
“Impossibly gifted ... one of the few artists since Sinatra with the depth, intelligence, and chops to do [Rodgers and Hart’s songs] justice.”
“An extraordinary repertoire.”
-- Terry Gross, National Public Radio’s “Fresh Air”
“The real thing …Hip, daring, confident and dynamic …All in all, he’s a busy little wunderkind …Eric Comstock is keeping a cherished tradition alive for a new generation.”
"A walking encyclopedia of The Great American Songbook, Comstock's infectious delivery
is chock-full of wittiness and warmth."
-- Sheila Anderson, WBGO Jazz 88 and HOTHOUSE JAZZ
“A fascinating evening of story and song … Comstock is very smart, very witty and very much in love with his material … By the time his set is up, you’ll be a little bit in love with him, too …”
“Superb and breathtaking …”
