"Jazzical is a magical album, full of smooth jazz, jazz-funk,
cool jazz and sophisti-jazz that fulfills the requirements of
what is called efficacious immediacy – everything jazz is
supposed to be."
--- Randy Radic, Huffington Post music
"Jazz guitarist Jim Hagen has established a much deserved
reputation as one of the best musicians working in the genre
today...The nine songs on his latest album Jazzical...reveal
him to be a formidable talent still growing despite a lifetime
in the music world."
--- Jason Hillenburg, Growing Old with Rock and Roll
"...Hagen and his collaborators have a lot of musical talent
to burn and could put on a jazz clinic at will...This is as
fine of an effort as you’ll hear in contemporary jazz and
shows both fidelity to the form while still being unafraid to
redefine it for the artist’s own personal use."
--- Robert Elgin, Blues You Can Use
"Jazzical establishes Jim Hagen and his collaborators as among
the finest jazz musicians writing and recording today."
--- Lydia Hillenburg, Hip Hip Dream
