“The album’s most transcendent moments come when the players improbably launch into two tunes by Warren Zevon. (Actor, musician) Steve Martin’s banjo leads a bluegrass version of “My Dirty Life and Times” that is somehow a perfect fit. Then there’s the album’s murder ballad, Zevon’s “Excitable Boy,” which comes complete with the trio of female backing singers singing the same vocal arrangement as in the original. David Bromberg’s lead vocal in this number is another match that works beautifully. Hearing Zevon done in jaunty bluegrass style is an experience all Warren fans need to have.” — Sonics= 4.5/5 — Robert Baird, Stereophile.com, Nov. 15, 2016
“Made in Brooklyn deserves a Grammy in either Americana or Bluegrass categories — or both.” — Country Music International
