"I have to say, I’ve been doing this for almost fifty years professionally, and I’ve worked with some of the greatest clarinetists in the world. This fifteen-year-old young man, Nathan, is playing at a level I’ve seldom heard the depth of understanding of New Orleans Jazz as I’ve heard coming out of that horn of anybody...... I’ve been praying for people to play Johnny Dodds like that."- Steve Pistorius, Pianist, New Orleans
