Album Notes
“Navigating his harmonically dense horn orchestrations, Small churns out quirky, imaginative lines that reveal experimental rock and collective free-jazz influences.” ~ Bass Player Magazine

“Small’s magnificent and imaginative bass playing creates a kaleidoscope of impressive sounds…the music (The Crushing Spiral Ensemble) plays has an integrity and excitement about it that many of the veteran jazz giants seem to have lost over the years.” ~ The San Francisco Examiner

“Seductive and mysterious…shifting effortlessly among klezmer, pop, rock, and improv jazz…Small infuses his quirky compositions with both breadth and intimacy.” ~ San Francisco Weekly

“His fascinating original compositions explore the painterly textures, colors, and sinewy rhythms of melodically intriguing pieces.” ~ The Guardian
