Jazz Journal (Vol. 67. No. 4 April 2014):  *****
“Everything included here is of good performance and is interesting. This cd will appeal to collectors of classic jazz and big bands. That’s more so as much of what is offered is not available elsewhere or only on LP-albums. With good sound quality and generous playing times this set deserves the full five stars that I have allocated
(George Hulme)

VJM (Summer 2013)
An excellent collection of rarities (pace Messrs Whiteman and Scott), in which you will find several items you are unlikely to get anywhere else. And Happy Birthday to Doctor Jazz, by the way! (Max Easterman)

Jazzism (Juli 2013)
Gewetensvol monnikenwerk! Dit is geen ingewikkelde Collector of je
moet niet van lezen houden. Het cd-boekje bij deze cd met toelichting van Ben Kragting is uitgebreid en consciëntieus. De discografie blinkt uit door volledigheid en voor doorleerders is er een literatuuropgave. (Coen de Jonge)

Jazzflits (198)
Als feestelijke bijdrage voegt de Jubilerende Stichting Doctor jazz daar zelf een stapel interessant materiaal aan toe In de vorm van een dubbel-cd Dinnertime For Hungry Collectors, dle ik u van harte kan aanbevelen. (Lex Lammen)
