Here are some kind words folks have written about Blue Bottle Collection:
"Secure your hats and hearts, this is sweeping and windy tunage" (Humfink.com.)
"Daniel Zaitchik's melodies, nimble like a young Cat Stevens, open the gate to nonlinear song structures and soaring Sufjan-esque harmonies, suggesting a profusion of ideas somehow fused together. Check out [his] new album, Summer of the Soda Fountain Girls; you’ll want in on these ideas" (Elie Lichtschein, Unveiled Arts.)
