  • “It’s the amalgam that amazes here.” (Jazz Now Interactive, USA)
  • “An adventurous sound that straddles jazz, classical, traditional and avant garde musics. It’s a sense of comradely fun that music brings on like nothing else. They definitely hit a lot of the right nerves with an infectious palette of rhythms, melodies and thoughtful exchanges of musical ideas. A refreshing, pleasurable disc.” (World Music Central)

It is the hope that this is only the beginning, and that many more recordings or touring opportunities can be offered to this extraordinary ensemble of brilliant musicians. For now, though, this is a must-buy — until that day arrives.” (All Music, USA)
