"It's like the three musicians are channelling themselves through the same default sound - a strikingly original opening gambit to a savvy hour of improvised music."                       Philip Clark, The Wire, February 08

"From hot, Dolphy-esque cascades to piano-roll pointillism, to unresolved twelve-tone tales, its improvised chamber music of the highest order."                                                                          Clifford Allen, Signal to Noise
