"Greg Reitan began the year with Some Other Time (Sunnyside, 2009), a spectacularly graceful record. He ends the year with another that equals—if not surpasses—the maturity of that album. Antibes is a work of exacting pianism and expansive grandeur. The record also dispels the notion that Reitan's music is an amalgam of his influences (Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett), for Reitan is a singular pianist with a technique becoming of a virtuoso of the highest order."
- Raul d'Gama Rose -- All About Jazz, January 2010

 

"For his second CD release in less than a year, pianist Greg Reitan expands his horizons further with a program of originals and select standards identifying a blossoming player whose youth and experience at age 36 serves him and the listener quite well. He has passed the Bill Evans sobriety test, avoids clichés of speed demons like Chick Corea, and has a European classicists approach similar, but not totally beholden to Keith Jarrett or Denny Zeitlin. Intellectual without ignoring beauty and romantic aspects of modern jazz piano playing, Reitan has all the talent, sensitivity, and good common sense to be a top-notch interpreter and expressionist for a long time."
- Michael G. Nastos -- All Music Guide, January 2010

 

"Reitan closes the disc with "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning," done most famously by Frank Sinatra on the 1955 Capitol Records album of the same name. The pianist, performing solo, plays the melody straight—and such a lovely melody it is, especially in Reitan's hands; and what a spare and perfect close to a first-rate CD by a bright new talent."
