Highly imaginative tracks from an up-and-coming group of artists
Highly imaginative tracks from an up-and-coming group of artists, definitely worth a good listen!

Adrian Troy

An absolutely beautiful album. The song "Roots" has to be heard to be believed.

Samaan Aziz

Really Good
Great CD. let me know when is the next release

Scott Whigham

Just smoking - buy it!
This is just some serious, serious music (in a good way). Tenor sax is incredible. I agree with David Brier's review that this is in the same vein of the Dave Holland material. I think it's sort of a mix of the Dave Holland stuff and Avishai Cohen's stuff.

David Brier

Truly mature REAL jazz in the vein of early acoustic Return to Forever and Dave Holland's bands. Just refreshing, and beautiful. Man, Rick, keep it up dude, the world needs MORE of this!


Great CD
An amazing listen. Just got mine in the mail and am burning it into my mp3 player which means that it is good enough to take with me on the go. And that's saying a lot.

Good stuff.

Mark S. Cook
