–Tourist was selected as one of the Best Jazz releases of 2013 by the Huffington Post
“All of that experience shows here as Wirtz puts forth on Tourist an incredibly rich album steeped in jazz that is far beyond his years . . . Wirtz showcases a massively vast range, virtuoso phrasing and impeccable taste.” – Brian Johnson, Marquee Magazine
“What Wirtz does with the piano is brilliant, a genius . . . ” — Joshua Johnson, Hey Reverb
“There are a few artists out there that can still play instruments in a way that will make your jaw hit the floor while plucking your heart strings . . . So enter pianist Jon Wirtz who just released his latest CD entitled Tourist. What do bands like Aaron Parks, Jacky Terrasson, and Keith Jarrett have that Jon Wirtz don’t? Not much if you ask me . . . let me go on record by saying he is what the world has been waiting for musically.” – Rory Richardson, AllWhatsRock.com
