Critical Acclaim

Critical Acclaim 

Hagen, soloed deftly, his lines moving gracefully in and out of the composition's subtle corners. 
-- Zan Stewart, LOS ANGELES TIMES

Hagen has a special way with the piano that sets him apart... He is gently respectful of melody, avoiding pianistic gymnastics and chord bashing.
--Dave Nathan, ALL MUSIC GUIDE

The excellence of Hagen's work on “Stay Tuned" is of such a high level that one would have expected him to be better known beyond the West Coast.
--Bill Donaldson, JAZZ IMPROV

Video "Gerard Hagen Trio"

When Hagen breaks loose into solos, it becomes evident that he is possessed of a swing and improvisational imagination that causes the listener to pay attention. ”

— Bill Donaldson-JAZZ IMPROV MAGAZINE

Hagen is a solid player with a gorgeous, sure touch. Do yourself a favour and check him out. ”

— George Fendel-JAZZSCENE
