“This is decidedly one of the best jazz albums I’ve listened to (yet) in 2016!… a superb aural adventure that gets a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED from me, with a (perfect) ‘EQ’ (energy quotient) rating of 5.0 – which means that it gets the ‘PICK’ of this issue for ‘best jazz ensemble’…”

“The most impressive quality of the music on this disc is the ability to artfully blur composition and improvisation to where it can be nearly imperceptible, and the way the seven piece group is suggestive of an entire thirteen or fifteen piece big band because the various methods of orchestration make things sound so rich.”
