"Now having laid an incredible foundation in the genre, look for Evan Carydakis to become a major force in smooth jazz in the coming years!" ~Jonathan Widran

"Movin On" is right in line with the blazing material he has so far; songs like the funky "Ponderosa" and the cooler, laid-back "Majorca." But with "Movin On," the pace is strong, and his notes set the story in motion. His horn has an assertive bop, a definite rhythmic statement and he's got the skill to imbue deep melody anywhere his tenor goes." ~ Debbie Burke (Jazz author)

"Evan Carydakis' infectious, multi-faceted five track EP Groove House is more than his high impact debut in the funky and soulful realms of the smooth jazz genre. For the Melbourne, Australia born and raised, University of New England educated, Tasmania based saxophonist, it's a full-on celebration created to commemorate 25 years since he first performed on stage."  ~Jazz Monthly
