Jordan Rudess first gained national exposure when the readers of Keyboard Magazine voted him 1994's Best New Talent in the Overall Best Keyboardist category after his first solo release Listen.
Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree calls Notes on a Dream, "Amazingly beautiful. Reminds me of the very best of Keith Jarrett's piano music, and that's about as big compliment as I can give to anything!"
Rich Wilson, contributing writer to the UK's Classic Rock Magazine, and Dream Theater biographer and author of Lifting Shadows: The Authorized Biography of Dream Theater, states "...his work is simply stunning and one that deserves to be heard by a larger audience than just DT fans…" and "…an album that is elegant, adventurous and the work of a modern day genius." Composer, musician, and former Director of Kurzweil Pro Products, Chris Martirano, states, "Jordan proves the piano is the ultimate acoustic vehicle! Notes On A Dream is a master work."
