"Gives an impish, dissonant spin to a big band sound...variety, forward drive, and a sharp wit."  New York Times

    "What made the performance absorbing was its easy, confident compromise between composition and improvisation.The music always had a sense of forward motion and free invention; you could hear these excellent musicians listening to one another." New York Times                                 



"Full of inventive gestures and unorthodox timbral juxtapositions. **** ½." -All Music Guide
