Led by Gordon Au, an impeccably trained trumpeter with an antiquarian ear, the Grand St. Stompers have become A PILLAR OF NEW YORK’S HOT JAZZ SCENE.
— Nate Chinen, The New York Times

The young trumpeter Gordon Au may have been born in California and named his band after a boulevard in old Brooklyn, but more than any other group on the current Hot Jazz scene, his music is the living embodiment of the great New Orleans revival—the years of Bunk Johnson, George Lewis, and the beginnings of Preservation Hall.
— Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal
