Praise for Hudson’s self-titled debut:

“… an elite jazz outfit collectively telling a compelling new story” – The Guardian

“When you’re done surveying the countryside that is Hudson, there’s a good chance you are charmed. It’s also a truly various landscape: not all jazz by any means, some world music, some Americana, a dose of jam band, and some real quirks. ” – PopMatters

“… a relaxed, rootsy album recorded in upstate New York, you’ll hear jazz and you’ll hear rock.” – The Times
