" The range of atmospheres and emotions in the poetry of Yaniv Taubenhouse’s music is astounding. Rarely and only once or twice in a lifetime do you get to hear a musician and a pianist who is as sensitive as Taubenhouse to the voice of the heart, the breadth of human emotion and its relationship with the whisper of nature, and its roar as well. "
- Raul Da Gama, Jazz da Gama
"Taubenhouse is, above all, a seductive pianist. He pursues lavish beauty unashamedly. For him, technical elements serve emotional, spiritual, and atmospheric purposes" - Thomas Conrad, JazzTimes
" Taubenhouse's musical personality and vision is so strong. His music has an intensity which comes from this purity of vision, but which, however, is balanced and underpinned by an emotional optimism that is very appealing. " - Budd Kopman, All About Jazz
" There is something patently studious and precise about Taubenhouse’s delivery, but also an eagerness to let fly, while his tender touch adds alluring gentleness " - Barry Davis, The Jerusalem Post
" Subtly sailing along in a way that elicits an all-over feel-goodism, the title track for Yaniv Taubenhouse’s new CD, “Perpetuation,” glows like a welcomed candle in the dark. Taubenhouse (trained in several instruments but ultimately drawn to piano) has written songs that melt away the anxieties and uncertainties of daily life. " - Debbie Burke Jazz Author
" Taubenhouse is a pianist who in addition to being endowed with special skill and discipline, succeeds in creating a unique sound with the trio he leads, one of the best that can be heard in today’s jazz world. " - Yosi Hersonski, YosMusic
" A marvelous piano trio outing. Taubenhouse has a restless sense of wonder on his own tunes, and a beautiful feel for the standards. And he's got crack trio-mates on board. He seems to know where he's going: where the music takes him. "
- Dan McClenaghan, All About Jazz
" Taubenhouse played a piano in the room. I was impressed. It was obvious that he could play fluidly, improvisationally and energetically. As you listen to Taubenhouse’s work, it is clear he already has great command of the instrument — not to mention all sorts of original musical ideas. " - Columbia (MO.) Daily Tribune
