“Rapp has his own way of defining jazz, which keeps its standard principles while delving into the experimental side.”
– JazzTimes

“Rapp is willing to tackle the history of this music with his eyes on the past and his mind on the present and future of this music.”

“One can’t help but sense a distinct identity to Rapp in both his composing and playing and for this reason, we will be hearing a lot more from him.”
– Jazz Improv NY Magazine
