"...Pukl combines the skill, soul, and appetite for adventure that has fuelled jazz evolution from the beginning, and he’s a rising star of a creative new generation that is energetically driving the music on into its second century." (John Fordham, The Guardian, London April 2012)

"Jure Pukl is an uncommon young artist with an original vision for modern music. He is one of those rare beings whose music reflects a higher understanding at a young age. With EARchitecture, he has created a listening experience with something to teach us all. He knows." (Vijay Iyer, pianist, NYC 2010)

"When a young musician looks back to the legacy, absorbs the salient points and places them in a contemporary context, you have a quality statement that will be rewarding to listener and musicians alike far into the future. Jure has done his homework." (Dave Liebman, saxophonist and educator)
