"The Seekers of Beauty used to be a cool band. Now with the addition of trombonist Kevin Schmidt, they are a hot band."
- Jim Meyer - City Pages (Minneapolis)

"This classy, danceable world-jazz sextet doesn't really fit into any of the common camps in town...The recent addition of trombonist Kevin Schmidt sounds like just the thing they need to round out their classical guitar/flute/piano melodies with a bit more bop power."
- Jim Meyer - City Pages (Minneapolis)

"enticing sonic explorations"
Bruce Gallanter - Downtown Music Gallery, NYC

"[Schmidt's] compositions are engaging. Playful to pensive to delightfully weird. Really excellent group...all the musicians are terrific. Tasteful playing, colorful, shifting textures, Nice!!"
- Louise Goldberg

"Honestly, I never would have thought that 'Enjoy' needed a bass trombone solo, but boy does it ever benefit from one."
- The once and future Dr. Science

Enjoy! - Bjorkestra - Koch Records
"...the Bjorkestra, ... at long last, ... have a record for me to check out. I love this record. Key tracks include the stunning opener, “Hyberballad” (with a great tenor sax solo from Sean Nowell), the guitar-filled “Army of Me” (guitar courtesy of Ben Monder), and the title track, arranged by bass trombonist Kevin Schmidt. Check this one out."
