"The Ganelin Trio Priority played a staggering set on the penultimate evening of the June, 2007 Vision Festival, a continuous and constantly morphing shock-and-awe campaign in which all national and international demarcations were obliterated."
- Marc Medwin, AllAboutJazz.com, August, 2007, USA
" ... improvisational genius of the highest order"
- Tom Sekowski, The Live Music Report, January 2008, USA
"The evening concert series featured some real high-octane entertainment, with the biggest explosion and highlight coming early in the form of the New York City debut of the Ganelin Trio Priority. ... Vysniauskas and Kugel proved to be dynamic players and improvisers, perfectly suited for the trio's dance with the devil."
- Ken Weiss, JAZZIMPROV, USA, 2007
- In February 2008 the GANELIN TRIO PRIORITY was featured on the US TV "SOME REAL MUSIC" on Time Warner cable channel 57, RCN cable channel 84 and worldwide on the web at MNN.org. They were featured as part of the program "3 x 3 -- 3 Modern Jazz Trios" which also included Fieldwork (Vijay Iyer, Steve Lehman & Tyshawn Sorey) and Hardcell (Tim Berne, Craig Taborn & Tom Rainey). Excerpts from all three trios' performances at 2007's Vision Festival have been shown as an exciting overview of three distinct approaches to the possibilities of the modern jazz trio no serious music listener would want to miss!
