Kenny Weir
Sunday Herald Sun (Australia), February 2002

"WHEN Mike Nock composed Somnium, Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven, Nata Lagal and Homage, he might not have known trombonist Ray Anderson was going to be on the session, but it sounds like it. Anderson, renowned for his bluesy blowing, fits right into the rolling gait of this top-notch aggregation's second album, making it just that bit more funky -- and accessible -- than the first. Not that it's a gutbucket affair, mind you. Just that the outfit's smart playing and arranging has been injected with a delicious, funky tang. Anderson is one of two new recruits. Trumpeter James Zollar is the other, while Nock (piano) is back, as are bassist Michael Formaneck, Mary Ehrlich (reeds) and Pheeroan ak Laff (drums) for an elegant outing."



Independent Culture Jazziz, June 2001

"This is a confident band of musicians doing what they do best - making free-wheeling first-class jazz and exploring their compositional muse."
