about

"The youthful energy of young jazzbos trying to recapture the free jazz groove on classic tunes recorded basically in a pair of sessions---just like the old days. Bristling with vigor, these four cats hit hard and take you right back to the smoky basement club where after hours never ends. Smoky stuff that just drips hipster---in a good way."
(Chris Spector -- Midwestrecord)

"These musicians fit well together, like a familiar key sliding into a front door lock. Their music feels comfortable, like home."
(Dee Dee McNeil -- Musicalmemoir’s Blog)

"There are four elements that combine in such a way so as to make The Drive […] commendable and these are the musicians who perform on it […] A fifth element makes it especially enjoyable to my ears and that is the music itself." (Steven Cerra -- Jazzprofiles)

Small ensemble, big sound, terrific satisfaction.
(Grady Harp -- 5 star Amazon Review)

"An album by a trio that knows how to improvise and vary in tone and rhythm." (Patrick Van de Wiele -- Keysandchords)

"This trio has talent and ability and has produced an album remarkably rich in tonal and rhythmic variety."
(Roger Farbey -- All About Jazz)
