“…his playing is total precision and full of fiery emotion.” (Dick Metcalf, Contemporary Fusion Reviews), “Classically trained, with technique to spare, Skogstad succeeds mightily in the effort.” (Dan McClenaghan, allabaoutjazz.com) “Skogstad’s touch is rich and romantic […] a collection of tasty treats” (George W. Harris, jazzweekly.com), "In this way, Skogstad reformulates the use of the piano in the genre and gives it an absolutely personal characteristic, to which he adds a precise technical interpretation not without subtle moments of improvisation." (Carlos Salatino, Tiempo Argentino).
