"Edmonton’s Rubim de Toledo has shown himself to be one of the most consistently inspired musical tailors in Alberta jazz, an excellent, in-demand bassist, a gifted composer-arranger and a smart bandleader, too." - Edmonton Journal (2017)

""The Dig features seven songs, with each track highlighting a different aspect of Toledo's incredibly diverse creativity and high-level musicianship. The album kicks off with a song titled "Saddleback," which tips the hat off to some of the best fusion-jazz out there. The bass tone is warm and dynamic, perfectly highlighting Toledo's articulation and his ability to drive the mix, without ever overpowering it..." - Jazz Corner (2021)
