"Bass-baritone Kevin Deas stands out as the real star of the show; he sings magnificiently." - Fanfare

"Dave Brubeck is a product not only of Judeo-Christian thinking but of the humanistic tradition of the Enlightenment. His identification with Jews, blacks, and with all who have known the lash of oppression is anything but accidental. The Hebrew Bible and most particularly the prophetic writings with their passion for social justice represent for him the essence of religious thought. Like Martin Luther King, Jr., Dave Brubeck is convinced that ‘we must learn to live together as brothers, or die together as fools.’ The Gates of Justice is a cantata based on Jewish texts, but its message is universal." - Rabbi Charles D. Mintz
