"The Crooked Jades are just a fascinating band - wild, wooly, totally unpredictable but always tasteful, soulful and a band that always brings a smile to my face.
They've got chords in unexpected places, harmonies that are out of this world and some of the most powerfully arranged material I've ever encountered."
Bluegrass Breakdown Radio Show, Dave Higgs WPLN 90.3FM/1430AM - Nashville Public Radio.

"The Crooked Jades start with the tropes of old-time music and then enlighten it, restructure it and just plain reinvent it, making new musical suits out of very old cloth."
Rambles Magazine

"Old-time is enjoying a tremendous national revival, partly due to smart young bands like the Crooked Jades, Ollabelle, the Duhks, the Reeltime Travelers, Uncle Earl, the Mammals, and Boston's own Crooked Still.
But even more, it's hot because it has existed almost entirely underground for years, preserved as a fun-loving social music, with a fiercely anti-commercial, anti-star vibe that pop-weary young people are eating up with an oaken spoon."
Scott Alarik, The Boston Globe, Feb 2005

"Old-time string music that might appeal as much to the pierced generation as to their great grandparents, the Crooked Jades are a band of West Coast pickers with equal parts attitude and respect.
They transform a form of music that thrives on energy by replacing the coal with musical nukes, along the way evoking the music's original purpose by making the listener want to get up and dance."
Chicago Tribune, "Best CDs of 2002" Dave Royko

"This string-driven San Francisco-based trad outfit is one of the best of the new generation of string bands, infusing old-timey hillbilly standards and originals with remarkable verve."
Strings Magazine
