All Music Guide - Skyler Miller
From the opening notes of "Spider Fingers," Hot House declares itself a jazzy showcase for Bruce Hornsby's piano skills, continuing further down the path started on Harbor Lights. Leaned more heavily toward the instrumental side of things, the album works better as a whole than as a collection of individual songs. Still, "White Wheeled Limousine" and "Country Doctor" show off Hornsby's gift for story weaving, and "Walk in the Sun" and "The Longest Night" rank among his best tracks. But Hot House is mostly about the overall vibe of the music, with lyrics taking a backseat in many cases. And that's just fine since the always technically proficient Hornsby has surrounded ...

But Hot House is mostly about the overall vibe of the music, with lyrics taking a backseat in many cases. And that's just fine since the always technically proficient Hornsby has surrounded himself with other talented musicians like Béla Fleck, Pat Metheny, and Jimmy Haslip. There's an upbeat, loose feel to even the darker-edged songs, making this his most optimistic release to date. While Hot House is less personal and contains fewer individually memorable tracks than Hornsby's previous albums, it's still a great listen.

    Hornsby's best studio recording by far

    This cd follows the same path Harbor lights did, yet Hot House delivers much more energy and jazz influence. We get to hear some beautiful instrumental arrangements along with many other discriminating artists who join Hornsby, such as Pat Metheny (who also played on Harbor Lights). The guitar virtuoso really gave some songs more musical depth with his breathtaking solos on such tunes as the magnificent ''Country Doctor'' and ''The Changes'' which sounds like Bruce Hornsby filling in for Lyle Mays in the PMG. Hot House really is an all-star cast and each song is a work of art. It is the perfect combination of jazz, pop, rock and even some folk. It is Hornsby's most confident, mature and accomplished work. Highly recommended.

    This is a go-to Bruce Hornsby session for me. He gives us more of his infectious jazz chops, and the horn arrangements, especially on Hot House Ball, are exemplary. It was this record that made me wish for a pure jazz instrumental album from Hornsby, and we got it later with Camp Meeting.
