"Dramatic and even powerful……….easy to listen to from the first playing, yet songs more original than you might imagine…(Hudak) exhibits a knack for being able to switch comfortably from playful to somber and back again with uncharacteristic ease…Hudak refuses to be pigeonholed, merrily traipsing from one musical motif to another…enough gentle curves thrown the listener's way that those who enjoy unpredictable music will be thrilled at some of the quirky yet irresistible transitions within selected songs…excellent results…It's rare that music can be bravely interesting at the same time as it's entertaining as well, but Bridging Textures manages it easily. No one said you can't occupy both sides of your brain at the same time, right?"
Bill Binkelman - New Age Reporter

“Bridging Textures is a new and impressively produced collection of lyrical and musical compositions from Jim Hudak. Introducing the listener to his unique edge and interpretive and conceptual lyrical mastery, this is Hudak's most inspiring album yet.”
John Burroughs - Midwest Book Review

“Bridging Textures is by far my favorite of Hudak's recordings to date…style (that) comes from the heart with warm sincerity…Great stuff!…an artistic leap forward for Jim Hudak that should bring a new audience to his music…Recommended."
Kathy Parsons - Solo Piano Publications

“Attractive melodies...seamless playing.”
William Ruhlmann - All Music Guide

“A style like no other…tender passion. Music in some of its most pleasing forms.”
Leigh Ann Lombardo - What's Up Entertainment News Magazine

“Superficially you could call Bridging Textures New Age, simply because Windham Hill founder Will Ackerman produced it, but there is much more going on here. The overall vibe is of musicality and relaxation…impeccably played instrumentals…Bridging Textures is a set of 14 tracks all played by a group of musicians with classy pedigrees…suitable for relaxing, driving, or that important dinner party.”
Musicwatch

“Instrumental work of the best quality. An expert pianist.”
Virginia Tamayo - Amazing Sounds

“Jim's interpretations are rich and round. They evoke my deepest emotions.”

“Jim Hudak's Gratefully Yours creates the atmosphere of an elegant restaurant with high ceilings, and I appreciate that.”
Bryce Westover - Grateful Dead Time Capsule

“Music with wide demographic appeal and huge sales potential. Hudak's piano playing is flawless and fluid, coaxing new levels of passion and emotion.”
Mark Jeffrey - Access Music

"On Bridging Textures: Picking up this CD on a drive to our state's capitol was fortuitous! The traffic was horrendous, aided and abetted by a sleet and snowstorm. Popping in the CD was a gift from music 'heaven.' The melodious talents of Jim Hudak worked a miracle on our firing neurons as we basked in the harmonious artistry of this music. Sheer honey to the ears. Words cannot suffice the description of this wonderful CD."
Rev. Dr. Sandra Gaskin - Spirit-Works
