"The music played here is "just XXIst century free jazz", but played at the highest possible level, with emotions and feeling erupting from the scene like lava from an exploding volcano. ... the whole album is magnifique!!!"
- Maciej Lewenstein, 2018

"Joe McPhee: The tireless reed player’s multi-decade career serves as a road map of the international avant garde, encompassing performance, recording and cross-genre collaborations." - By Daniel Spicer, WIRE, February 2019

listen to the trio here

... (Joe McPhee's) magical take on avant-garde sax remains one of the wonders of the scene. He still has one of the most beautiful tones on the planet, even when he’s reaching for jazz’s outer limits." mjd 5/02

John Edwards has always been involved with a wide diversity of musical styles and situations. At home with composed and improvised music he is one of the busiest musicians on the scene.

Drummer Klaus Kugel is one of Central Europe's busiest and most articulate modern jazz drummers ... he treads the boundary between inside and outside playing in a particularly incisive way; always listening and never getting caught up in his own considerable chops." - Dave Wayne, AAJ, 2013
